    Thumbs up 38 years ago today

    ....the greatest fishing movie ever.

    I remember jumping from my seat when the shark came up at the stern while Brody was dumping chum into the wake! it was the greatest shark movie ever and has kept me from wading too deep in bays ever since................

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    "We're gonna need a bigger boat!"

    I jumped out of my skin in the diving scene when that head appeared in the hole in the boat. Almost peed down both legs and I'm sure I screamed like a girl (no offense ladies )

    "Bad fish. Not like goin' down to the pond chasing bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole."

    Quint's story about the sinking of the Indianapolis and the sharks attacking the survivors was great. Robert Shaw rewrote it and Spielberg agreed to film his version.

    Robert Shaw was The Man. I'll watch him in anything.

    They used to run Jaws every weekend in the summer at the old Holmdel Drive-In, and every Saturday night I was sitting roof top of my mothers old Valiant!

    Mr. Bash,

    I was beginning to wonder if you had been eaten by Jaws! Good to see you posting.
