If you are a cinephile, you could not miss the small appearance of Steven Spielberg in the cult comedy The Blues Brothers, broadcast this Sunday evening on Arte. The American director appears in fact for the time of a short scene in which he gives the reply to Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, a Belushi he had directed shortly before in 1941.
Spielberg, then in his thirties and with a mustache for the occasion, plays in The Blues Brothers a tax collector who receives with satisfaction the money that Jake and Elwood, the two heroes, come to give him in a somewhat eventful manner. of the movie. A passage to find in video here.
The Blues Brothers is a work rich in star cameos. We thus find in the credits Carrie Fisher, Princess Leia of Star Wars, but also Henry Gibson, Frank Oz or John Landis, the director of the film.
For Steven Spielberg, making a little wink in the work of another filmmaker is a little pleasure that he has given himself on several occasions, as in Gremlins, Men In Black, Vanilla Sky and Austin Powers in Goldmember. Appearances to (re) discover in our dedicated Top 5 show.
