Two DSs, individually signed "John A. Belushi" and "Dan Aykroyd, President," each one page, 8.5 x 11, January 3, 1980. Both submitted to Irwin & Rowan, advising the firm that they have "retained the law offices of Bushkin, Kopelson, Gaims, Gaines & Wolf," and requesting delivery of all files, documents, and other materials pertaining to "Phantom Enterprises," "Black Rhino Enterprises," and "The Blues Brothers." In very fine condition.
Belushi and Aykroyd debuted their iconic Blues Brothers characters as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live in April 1978, and the popular act soon took on a life of its own—they released an album in November, opened for the Grateful Dead at the closing of Winterland, and had a movie deal a year later. The classic film, directed by John Landis, was released on June 20, 1980, six months after these documents were signed. A superlative pairing from two comedy legends.
