JAWS Lost Interviews from the 1970s

Lost Interviews from the 70s

by Dan Ward/Jake Gove

‘New England Our Way’ TV show (1974)

Thanks to Dan Ward for providing a copy of the 1974 TV program New England Our Way. The program is a fascinating look some at the key people involved with JAWS before it was released. It contains interviews with the “big three” of Scheider, Dreyfuss and Shaw, Steven Spielberg, and Martha’s Vineyard local Craig Kingsbury, who played Ben Gardner. Check out the video clips below:

All That JAWS – JAWS Parody Film

Way back in 1988, TSISW’s Michael Roddy and Erik Hollander as well as Chuck Gramling made a hilarious parody of JAWS called All That JAWS. Check out the trailer below:

Kevin Smith JAWS References

Filmmaker Kevin Smith is a well-known JAWS fan and as a result, put JAWS references into several of his films.  His next film is Zack and Miri Make a Porno, to be released on October 31, 2008. Maybe he put a JAWS reference in that as well …

Clerks: Randal saying “Salsa Shark … We’re gonna need a bigger boat.” was also said by Brody in Jaws “You’re gonna need a bigger boat”

Mallrats: Brody… The name Brody is also the name of the police chief in Jaws.

Mallrats: TS Quint… Quint is the name of the skipper in Jaws.

Chasing Amy: Hooper X… Matt Hooper is the name of Richard Dreyfuss’ character in Jaws.

Chasing Amy: The conversation between Banky and Alyssa in Meow Mix about “permanent injuries” is almost exactly the same conversation between Matt Hooper and Quint in Jaws.  The scene was also shot to look like the scene in Jaws.

Dogma(filmed but cut from the movie): During the scene where the main characters are trying to talk Cardinal Glick out of having the ceremony, Jay goes behind a changing screen and moves the Cardinal’s hat like a shark fin.

Jersey Girl: Kevin tried to license a clip of Jaws – the shot where Quint gets eaten, but was denied use of the clip.

Climate change ‘may save’ grey nurse shark

Conservationists fear Australia’s grey nurse shark could become extinct by 2050 but, according to a group of leading shark scientists, global warming could help save them.

Scientists have predicted that a rise in sea temperature could be good for the grey nurse shark and save it from extinction.

“This is probably one of those one in a hundred examples where climate change may actually be somewhat beneficial for this particular species,” University of Adelaide’s Associate Professor Corey Bradshaw said.

Australia has two grey nurse shark populations: one off the east coast – ranked as critically endangered – and one off the west coast, categorised as vulnerable.

Scientists believe the two groups have been isolated from one another for more than 100,000 years.
