40th Anniversary Celebration! 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 ÒBruce,” 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, forty years later, “Jaws” is still making audiences scream, laugh and cheer. Join us as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of one of the greatest movies ever made! (Brendan Carr)
