James Brown's preacher robes from The Blue Brothers...

In 1980's cult comedy classic The Blues Brothers, John Belushi and Dan Akyroyd play brothers who embark on 'a mission from God' to reunite their rhythm and blues band in order to save the Catholic orphanage where they grew up. The 'Godfather of Soul', James Brown, plays an Evangelical preacher, 'Reverend Cleophus James', in one of the memorable gospel music and dance scenes in the movie.
