Here is a little bit o' info for you... Robert Shaw (AKA Quint) was a heavy drinker during the filming of "Jaws", and was therefore impossible to get along with. This is what made the bitter squabbles between his character and Richard Dreyfuss's character (Hooper) seem so realistic.
Although I do have a terrible phobia of sharks, Robert Shaws portrayal of the grizzled old sailor, Quint, worth watching. One of my favorite supporting characters of all time, Quint turns the movie from an brainless action flick, into a movie with substance
Movie poster shows a woman in the ocean swimming to the right. Below her is a large shark, and only its head and open mouth with teeth can be seen. Within the image is the film's title and above it in a surrounding black background is the phrase "The terrifying motion picture from the terrifying No. 1 best seller." The bottom of the image details the starring actors and lists credits and the MPAA rating.
**Jaws (1975) Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss - Director: Steven Spielberg - The sheriff of Amity has a problem: a giant shark is eating the nice people who pay his salary. Quint: "...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, three hundred and sixteen men come out, the sharks took the rest, June the 29, 1945. Anyway, we delivered the bomb."
