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.

MonsterQuest : Jaws in Illinois airs Oct. 29th/30th

MonsterQuest : Jaws in Illinois

Airs Wednesday October 29 09:00 PM on The History Channel
UPDATE: Also airs Thursday, October 30 01:00 AM

One of the deadliest predators in the ocean, the Bull Shark, can tolerate fresh water. It can swim hundreds of miles upstream–one strange photo from the 1930s suggests that sharks can even reach Illinois. Come along with our team as they look for proof of sharks in freshwater, uncovering a deadly attack from history, and searching the bayous of Louisiana for predators. Watch as another expedition finds living evidence of a massive beast as big as a Great White Shark in the St. Lawrence River.

Custom JAWS Action Figures

Mike Lorenz created some amazing custom JAWS figures of Brody, Quint, and Hooper. Here’s some info about the figures from Mike:

“It took 2 action figures to make 1 figure. Brody comes with a spear, rifle, pistol, and air tank. I did him in the classic outfit he had on at the end of the movie. Quint comes with a spear-gun, fishing rod, and a machete. He was done in the outfit when he first sees the shark. Hooper comes with 2 barrels and a 35mm camera. He was done in the outfit near the end of the movie. On the front of each package are the words…it’s as if God created the devil himself and gave him ….Jaws.

I don’t like to tell all my secrets for making my custom figures, but I’ll tell you what I can. All of the figures I used modeling clay on. Quint’s army jacket and shirt is all molded in clay, pockets and all. He also has Quint in black over the right upper pocket. Hooper’s sweatshirt is also done from modeling clay. His hair is done in the clay. I tried to get it so the hair is wavey and all over the place. Brody’s gun belt/buckle is made from clay as well. The air tank is made from modeling clay. The spear-gun, machete, camera, fishing rod and spear are all custom made. I used balsa wood, clay, putty, and glue.

For the packaging I went with the 25th anniversary picture. All the cards have the character’s pic of the outfit they are wearing as the figure. It also has their name on the card as well as what the figure comes with.”
