Spielberg took a fun summer activity like going to the beach and turned it into the worst vacation ever! In Jaws, the quiet island of Amity is sent swimming for the shores when a 25-foot-killer shark starts to snack on beach dwellers. After several bloody attacks, Brody makes it his mission to catch Jaws…before he becomes shark bait himself.
Fun & Freaky Facts:
• The movie was filmed in Martha’s Vineyard, MA.
• The actress in the opening sequence was attached to weighted ropes and pulled around to mimic the jerking of a real shark attack.
• The mechanical shark used in the movie was nicknamed, “Bruce,” after Spielberg’s lawyer.
