Jaws Residency

On this day in 1975 Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws” was released creating the summer blockbuster and Hollywood’s feeding frenzy to replicate that model. Not only was it a hit with movie goers, but the Great White Shark also loved the notoriety.

They would occasionally take summer vacations along the shores of Cape Cod, amusing themselves bay scaring the hell out of summer renters.

And just like those summer renters, they dreamed of one day moving to those loverly shores.

They have succeeded. Cape Cod is now a breeding ground for Great White Sharks, according to marine biologist Chris Fischer. Which is the perfect name for such a profession.

I think we need a larger beach.

    The casting was inspired: Richard Dreyfus, the late Roy Scheider and the late Robert Shaw.
    All are superb in their characterizations.
    Mr. Shaw has been a favorite of mine since I first saw him in a TV show in the fifties called:” The Buccaneers.” He played Captain Dan Tempest, the leader of group of adventuring sailors who were former pirates, in the 18th century. (He played a similar, yet distinctly piratical role in the film “Swashbuckler.”)
    The characters into whom Mr. Shaw breathed life in: “From Russia With Love,” “The Battle Of The Bulge,” “The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three,” “The Sting,” “Jaws” and “Swashbuckler” continue to stand out when I consider the most memorable film performances in my recollection.
