#2 on AFI's 100 Years ... 100 Thrills
"Don't go in the water."
Steven Spielberg's monster hit didn't merely set box office records, it reshaped the fundamentals of the movie world and created the template for how future summer blockbusters would be released. Roy Scheider is police Chief Martin Brody, battling a shark of a mayor, who prioritizes tourist dollars over human lives, as well as a great white shark. With memorable turns by Richard Dreyfus and the spellbinding Robert Shaw as Quint. Four Oscar nominations, with wins for Sound, Editing and John Williams' now-classic score.
