Review of The JAWS Log

Writer/actor Carl Gottlieb tells the entertaining story of how Jaws made its torturous, and now legendary, journey from the pages of a best-selling novel to movie theater screens across the United States and cinema history.

It’s embarrassing for me to admit that it has taken me 33 years to get around to reading Carl Gottlieb’s The Jaws Log, a behind-the-scenes journal of the making of what I consider to be the greatest movie ever made.

Deliverance Poster — Does This Look Familiar?

Thanks to Mike and Dave, a couple of my Facebook friends and members of the JAWSmovie community, this one-sheet for Deliverance (1972) bears a striking resemblance to the original iconic one-sheet for JAWS. Perhaps original poster artist Roger Kastel was inspired by the redneck-laden film that came out three years before JAWS?

Maybe this guy knows:

Mr. JAWS by Dickie Goodman

Mr. JAWS

By Dickie Goodman

Dickie Goodman was a creator of novelty records and is considered a pioneer in sampling with his series of “break-in” records beginning with The Flying Saucer in 1956.

In 1975, Goodman peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with “Mr. Jaws,” a break-in record in which he interviews several characters from JAWS. The record became Goodman’s biggest-selling hit record.

Mr. JAWS Song Lyrics:

We are here on the beach where a giant shark has just eaten a girl swimmer!
Well Mr. Jaws, how was it?

“Dynomite!”

And what did she say when you grabbed her?

“Please, Mr. Please.”

I know sharks are stupid, but what did you think when you took that first bite?

“How sweet it is.”

Mr. Jaws, before you swim out to sea, have you anything else to say?

“Why can’t we be friends, why can’t we be friends?”

With me now is the local sheriff.
Sheriff Brody, the shark will be back for lunch. What do you intend to do?

“Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight!”

Just arriving is oceanographer Matt Hooper.
Sir, if someone is attacked by a shark, what should they do?

“Do the hustle”

We are going aboard the fishing boat of Captain Quint.
Captain, will you be able to catch this giant shark?

“I will!” “I will!” “I will!” (Thank you, captain.) “I will!” (Captain?) “I will!” (Captain!)
“I will!” (Captain!)

When you catch one of these sharks, what do you feel like?

“Like a Rhinestone Cowboy.”

We’ve just sighted the shark again. He’s coming straight for us!
Captain Quint is shouting something at him!

“Get you baby one of these nights!”

Hey Jaws, the captain says he’s going to catch you! What do you think of that?

“Jive talkin’!”

Uh-oh, here he comes again! (Gun shots) They’ve hit him!
Mr. Jaws, why doesn’t anything seem to hurt you?

“Big boys don’t cry, big boys don’t cry.”

He’s coming right onto the boat! Mr. Jaws, why are you grabbing my hand?

“Wouldn’t you give your hand to a friend?”

No wait! Mr. Jaws! That’s not the way this record is supposed to end! Help! Help!
(Drowning noises, Theme from “Jaws”)
