About

Based on Peter Benchley's best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg's 1975 shark saga set the standard for summer blockbusters while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. After shark attacks ravage a resort beach town, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from a visiting ichthyologist (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, the scientist and police chief (Roy Scheider) join forces with the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White.
