- Jeff passed July 12, 2004 but I just noticed a story about him from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal posted a few days ago.
“Well I sure am glad to have you guys here,” he says. “I’m Bob, and this here’s my place.”
With these simple lines, two-thirds of the way through the 1980 film “The Blues Brothers,” an actor logged his presence in the minds of a generation of moviegoers. In a way, he earned the fame he must have craved as he sat in a classroom at Lubbock High School.
“Jeff Morris” is not in the yearbook for the Lubbock High class of 1953. But Morris Berger, his given name, is.
