Long Description:
The Blues Brothers, a musical comedy, was filmed in several location around Chicago. One of the spots featured was the famous Picasso statue located in the Daley Plaza.

This shot was part of the climax scene of the movie. After attempting to pay a Catholic orphanage's taxes and running from the law the entire movie, they are finally approaching the tax assessor's office - with the entire Chicago police force in tow. If you look closely, you can see the "Blues-mobile" near the base of the statue.

How they were able to get permission to do a high speed chase past a valuable Picasso sculpture is beyond me.

There are many more locations from the movie waiting to be waymarked. BruceS has found a couple. Why don't you post one?
