From the first day of shooting, “Jaws” felt like a movie destined for failure. Budgets and schedules went out the window. Cast and crew were often sidelined by seasickness. And the chief special effect, a 25 foot mechanical shark nicknamed Bruce,” did not work 90% of the time. But director Steven Spielberg, screenwriter Carl Gottlieb, editor Verna Fields, composer John Williams, and actors Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss turned those disadvantages into box office gold. Now, 40+ years later, “Jaws” is still making audiences scream, laugh and cheer. Join us as we celebrate the first Saturday of Summer with one of the greatest films ever made. (Brendan Carr)
