I grew up watching and laughing at the antics of John Candy in films like Uncle Buck, Spaceballs and Planes, Trains & Automobiles, so it was cool to see one of the outfits the Canadian comedian wore in The Blues Brothers on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on November 30, 2011.

Deborah Nadoolman was Costume Designer on the 1980 cult comedy classic and if you like this outfit, be sure to also check out the preacher robes worn by James Brown in The Blues Brothers on display.
