John Belushi will always be the shining star of SNL. He was terrific as the Samurai and very funny. This doll captures him at that time and truly resenbles him in costume and face. Highly recommended for nostalgia fans like myself who love classic SNL.

Belushi's life was detailed in two books: the 1984 biography Wired: The Short Life and Fast Times of John Belushi by Bob Woodward and 1990's Samurai Widow by his wife Judith. Woodward's book was adapted into a 1989 film of the same name, which was denounced by Aykroyd and Judith Belushi and was given poor reviews by critics.
"The tragedy is a common tragedy," says Jim, 66, who stars on Discovery's Growing Belushi. "But there is only one John Belushi talent."
