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
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.
Jaws (1975 - all) - Classic Adventure | Horror | Thriller - When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and grizzled fisherman set out to stop it. Stars: Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss ♥♥♥
**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."
