Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back into the Water—Snakkle Celebrates the Stars of JawsHas it really been over 39 years since we first developed a fear of dark water and John Williams's use of a tuba? In 1975, Steven Spielberg’s Jaws introduced us to menacing man-eating sharks and Roy Scheider’s scowl. The film was a huge box office success, with a worldwide gross of $470,600,000, the highest of its time. Naturally, Hollywood followed up with three sequels, Jaws 2 (1978), Jaws 3-D (1983), and Jaws: The Revenge (1987). Snakkle catches up with the stars of the franchise to find out what they are up to today. By Katherine Butler
Take one extremely annoyed shark; add in an obnoxious mayor, a feisty marine biologist, and a crazy shark hunter. Sprinkle in a bunch of swimmers like fish food. Then cap it all off with "everyman" Roy Scheider. What are you left with? An iconic film that remains on top of most critics’ lists as one of the best films ever made, Jaws became an instant classic. This is in part due to Scheider’s stoic performance as police chief Martin Brody, the man determined to make sushi out of the shark menacing his town.
