“We Had a Budget for Cocaine”

On Akroyd meeting Belushi and making the Blues Brothers movie.

Glazer begs off. This is Aykroyd’s baby. He’s an Emmy winner, the author of many or most of his best S.N.L. skits. There’s just one catch, production-wise. This runaway train hinges on a screenwriter who has never in his life written or even read a screenplay.

I always thought the problem was ME – that I was the reason I never liked this movie.

Gotta start somewhere.
