Trivia: Elwood never takes off his sunglasses at any point in the movie. Likewise, Jake never takes off his hat.
Suggested correction: He pulls his sunglasses off in front of Carrie Fisher at the very end of the movie.
It's Jake that pulls his sunglasses off in front of Carrie Fisher, not Elwood.
Elwood swaps his sunglasses for safety specs at his workplace when he quits his job. DVD release only.

Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses.Jake: Hit it.
In the scene where they go to Elwood's apartment, Elwood puts on a 78 RPM Decca Louis Jordan record. The record is entitled "Saturday Night Fish Fry". But the song that plays is "Let The Good Times Roll".
This movie set a long-standing Guinness World Record for the largest number of automobiles ever destroyed in a movie: 60 refurbished and reinforced police cars were wrecked (most beyond repair) in the various chase scenes. This record held until the belated sequel, "Blues Brothers 2000," (1998) deliberately set the new record by wrecking one additional automobile for a total of 61.
