Effingham, Ill. (Chicago, Ill.) – Sorry Ferris Bueller, Jake and Elwood are Illinois’ most beloved movie stars.
Illinois’ Bicentennial Commission yesterday announced that voters picked The Blues Brothers as the best movie filmed in Illinois.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off came in second, A League of Their Own came in third.
The movie category is the first in a series of Top Ten lists that will be created for Illinois’ bicentennial.
Planners hope to have a Top 200 in place for the state’s 200th birthday in December.
