- Julien's had a "Legends" auction last Thursday and had a hat worn by John Belushi while filming The Blues Brothers. We know John went through a lot of sunglasses but I don't know how many hats he might have used. Julien's estimated it would bring between $2,000 - $4,000 so I'll assume they were on the surprised side when it sold for $28,125 .
A black fedora hat with two Dobbs New York stamps and one from Roos/Atkins California, worn by John Belushi in his role as "Joliet" Jake Blues in The Blues Brothers (Universal, 1980). The hat has a black grosgrain ribbon; no size present. Belushi gifted the hat to a personal friend after filming. The friendship is mentioned in Bob Woodward's book Wired: The Short Life & Fast Times of John Belushi (New York: Simon & Schuster, 1984). Accompanied by the book and a copy of the film. A letter of provenance will be included post auction (upon request).
