  1. I just realized something, why didn't Hooper react when he heard the splash of the shark coming out of the water? He would have heard it and given some kind of reaction, wouldn't he? Or am I wrong? If I am please feel free to correct me, just be nice about it

  2. I was only 12 years old watching that movie in the theater. It sure scared me to death. People screaming during certain parts of the movie. Seeing s 🦈 that big, I thought that I was glad that I wasn't on that boat. Still one of the best movies ever made. Thanks for posting.

  3. There are supposedly 25 feet whites out there. Just imagine that’s a juvenile Meg. Adults were like 60-70 feet.

  4. Got tickets to see this film at the local cinema.
    First time I’ve seen it on the big screen.
    Can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

  5. in the Document of Jaw they stated that Roy (Brody) NEVER saw the shark until that moment, not even in production. the fear was real

  6. I don't get how some people say the shark looks fake. It looks a hell of a lot more convincing then CGI sharks you see in movies these days.

  7. Release date: June 20, 1975.
    I saw it with the family on opening night at a drive-in on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
    Previous days – beaches were crowded. Many people and kids in the water, swimming, wading, paddling, boarding, etc. Lots of fun.
    The day after we saw the movie, we went to the beach.
    Beaches – crowded. People in water – NONE .
    Parents were actually sometimes yelling at their children to stay out of the water.
    That's how scary this movie really was when it first came out.

  8. The shark was a figment of their imagination it never existed. That's the twist nobody has realized all this time. It was an illusion a Monster from their collective ID reflecting the guilt America felt from the Vietnam War.

  9. Gotta admit, the first time I saw this scene, I thought Chief Brody actually threw some of that bait right into the Shark's mouth…

  10. All those fish in the ocean and he goes for some people in a boat. And on the beach.

    I guess this shark just loves human meat.

  11. The exact moment you realize that the shark is not running away and begin to wonder just who is hunting who.

  12. Thank god the mechanical shark didn't work and Spielberg had to rely on music and quick editing. Made it scarier.

  13. Till this day I cant help but watch this timeless classic. One of my greatest memories of this movie was to have the pleasure of seeing it on the big screen with Mom, this is her all time favorite sceen.

  14. This is not the way i remember it chief Brody said were going to need a bigger boat not you're going to need a bigger boat

  15. Saw the movie in 1976 , one of few movies that can have the same impact on you , although you've watched it many times before !

    Spielberg & John Williams at their best ! 👌😎

  16. Quint is the best character in this movie. He comes off as such a rugged and rogue sea captain but you can tell how deep down he’s really scared shitless of sharks. This scene and the Indianapolis scene captures that very well. He knew this shark would be his demise

  17. Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up. If you want to play it cheap, be on welfare the whole winter. I don't want no volunteers, I don't want no mates, there's just too many captains on this island. $10,000 for me by myself. For that you get the head, the tail, the whole damn thing.

  18. Japanese submarine slammed two torpedoes into our side, Chief. We was comin' back from the island of Tinian to Leyte… just delivered the bomb. The Hiroshima bomb. Eleven hundred men went into the water. Vessel went down in 12 minutes. Didn't see the first shark for about a half an hour. Tiger. 13-footer. You know how you know that when you're in the water, Chief? You tell by looking from the dorsal to the tail fin. What we didn't know, was our bomb mission had been so secret, no distress signal had been sent. They didn't even list us overdue for a week. Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark will go away… but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark… he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living… until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they… rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand. I know how many men, they averaged six an hour. On Thursday morning, Chief, I bumped into a friend of mine, Herbie Robinson from Cleveland. Baseball player. Boatswain's mate. I thought he was asleep. I reached over to wake him up. He bobbed up, down in the water just like a kinda top. Upended. Well, he'd been bitten in half below the waist. Noon, the fifth day, Mr. Hooper, a Lockheed Ventura saw us. He swung in low and he saw us… he was a young pilot, a lot younger than Mr. Hooper. Anyway, he saw us and he come in low and three hours later a big fat PBY comes down and starts to pick us up. You know that was the time I was most frightened… waitin' for my turn. I'll never put on a lifejacket again. So, eleven hundred men went in the water; 316 men come out and the sharks took the rest, June the 29th, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

  19. Chief Brody is correct.

    If Quint's boat hadn't been such a worthless floating wreck, the battle might have been won for the three of them on that first day of the encounter.

    Just sayin'.

  20. When I first watched this clip in 1986 when I was a toddler. I'd watch the shark swim past the boat with that music I'd jump up and down on one spot and get so excited lol

  21. The undisputed champion of shark movies. All the blood, sweat, and tears that went into making this masterpiece, it’s still one of the greatest horror films of all time. RIP Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw.

  22. Just found out this phrase became so because the producers were really cheap and everyone kept telling them "Youre going to need a bigger boat" so much, it became a joke phrase for any time something went wrong in production

  23. This scene was the kicker… no turning back… even today, I don't swim unless I have a Robert Shaw poster… don't you?

  24. Captain Quint: "25, three tons of him"
    Actually, it would be three tons of HER as only the female Great White can get that big. But we all know what he meant…

  25. roy scheider stole so many scenes in jaws with his brilliant ad libs . not easy to do when your sharing screen time with robert shaw .

  26. I think, “I’m going fishing”, in reply to Brody’s wife asking him where he’s going, is the best line from this film — and not this one.
