Quotes

[from trailer] Leonard Chess: That's a record! Mick Jagger: [From trailer] Mr. Waters. We're big fans. We named our band after one of your songs. Muddy Waters: Yeah? Mick Jagger: Rolling Stone. Etta James: Don't be looking at me like I ain't got no draws on. Muddy Waters: You alright? Damn it. Little Walter: I had no business being that pretty anyway. Muddy Waters: You and me not gonna wake up every morning and get everything we want. Mostly we got to take what come. And half the time, that's gonna be a bunch of bullshit. Willie Dixon: [as a narrator] When you lose that cat that gave you the sound that nobody else could, it hurts. Hurts more than losing your woman.

Trivia

- 'Matt Dillon' (qv) was originally meant to play Leonard Chess but ultimately couldn't do the movie. 'Adrien Brody' (qv) replaced him.

- Leonard Chess' brother, Philip, was his partner in both the night club and Chess Records. However, Philip is never mentioned throughout the film, and only appears in Chess Record scenes.

- Billy "Roquel" Davis produced Etta James' records for Chess, not the Chess brothers.

- Arranger Riley Hampton, who orchestrated all of Etta's Chess hits, including "At Last," is not mentioned anywhere in the film.
