Prison number tribute to Belushi

In the movie, Trading Places, Louis Winthorpe’s (Dan Aykroyd) prison number is the same as Jake Blues’ (John Belushi) prison number in The Blues Brothers as a trubute to Belushi, who had died the year before.

Belushi was 33 when he died of an overdose in 1982. I remember Dad being upset about it – but what I remember most – was that Dad was also age 33 at that time. I thought it was weird that Dad could be the same age of a famous guy that had just died.

Thanks Eric
