B. B. King and Robert Downey Jr.

kin2-014

Here’s a scene from a forgotten gem of a movie, Heart and Souls (1993 PG-13).  Robert Downey Jr has to help a ghost of an aspiring opera singer who was too afraid to sing in public.  He has to do this before the green bus to heaven arrives.  I know, it sounds strange, but the movie is really fun!

At a concert, Downey gets the opera ghost to use his body to sing the national anthem before B. B. King takes the stage. No one expects the Star Spangled Banner, which makes the scene clever.

And B. B. King’s reaction is the best part of all!
