  1. I danced in the (origanal) ‘Blues Brothers’ movie, in the scene with James Brown singing with the James Cleavland choir. What a wonderful excillerating and greatly choreographed by (the ‘late’) Carlton Johnson. He was the first African American male dancer, then later to be the choreographer, of the Carol Bernett show.
