Such was the impact of Jaws ($6) on its release that it actually did make people afraid to go in the water. Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on the novel by Peter Benchley, Jaws is still the benchmark against which all subsequent killer shark movies have been compared. Chief Brody, Roy Schneider, has his quiet life shattered when the town of Amity is terrorized by a great white shark. A power battle begins between him and mayor as his priority is keeping the good people of Amity safe while the mayor refuses to close the beaches. Also starring Richard Dreyfuss and boasting a sublime performance by Robert Shaw as crazy Quint the shark hunter, this movie is a true classic.
About Lee King
I live in a great city outside of Philadelphia and run Muted in my free time. Being close to a number of large metropolitan areas gives me a lot of inspiration for menswear and gear. Originally from Pittsburgh as well as a Suburban Detroit transplant I went to Michigan State University and spent most of my career managing global IT services for Pharmaceuticals. Besides mens clothing I enjoy, bonsai, my family, dogs and hanging by the pool.
