The Blues Brothers, the classic 1980 John Landis Chicago Illinois blues and rock 'n' roll (rock and roll) crime action comedy musical ("They'll never get caught.

Important Added Info:

What IS linenbacking? Learn More

Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: very good. The poster had thumb tack holes in the corners and in the center of the top of the poster, with a few smudges at top center. Overall, the poster was in very good condition prior to linenbacking. The restorer backed the poster "in the European style", meaning that they did not do restoration to the defects described above, but they are really not very distracting (and a talented restorer could touch them up without re-backing the poster).
