Not only is JAWS one of the most influential films of the 1970's, it's probably one of the most influential films of all time. And with great reason: it's a awesome movie. Attention getting story with a pace that never lets up, great acting (Robert Shaw and Roy Scheider should have both been nominated for an Academy Award), beautiful scenery, great photography, legendary monster that scared the living fuck out of an entire generation and probably one of the most instantly identifiable musical scores of all time. Highly, highly recommended. This is one of my favorite movies to watch over and over again.
A great story about a fan hunting for the fourth "Bruce"...here.
"Coroner" misspelled twice.
How nice of Bruce to give Quint a cushion to lay on.
