#6 The Blues Brothers Meet Reverend Cleophus James
The story is a tale of redemption for paroled convict Jake and his brother Elwood, who take on “a mission from God” to save from foreclosure the Catholic orphanage in which they grew up. To do so they must reunite their rhythm and blues band and organize a performance to earn $5,000 to pay the tax assessor. On their adventure they meet Reverend Cleophus James. Reverend Cleophus James gave sermons at the Triple Rock Baptist Church in Chicago. He was also known to travel across America with Reverend Morris, occasionally performing in Tent Revival Meetings.
