Jaws also played a major part in establishing summer as the prime season for the release of studios' biggest box-office contenders, their intended blockbusters;[126][210] winter had long been the time when most hoped-for hits were distributed, while summer was largely reserved for dumping films thought likely to be poor performers.[209] Jaws and Star Wars are regarded as marking the beginning of the new U.S. film industry business model dominated by "high-concept" pictures—with premises that can be easily described and marketed—as well as the beginning of the end of the New Hollywood period, which saw auteur films increasingly disregarded in favor of profitable big-budget pictures.


This is interesting!

I was way too young to have seen Jaws when it first came out in theaters and I don’t think I saw the movie until I was in junior high school.

You're gonna need a bigger boat line was not written for this scene. Roy Scheider said it on the spot.

I was in Jr. High School when it came out and saw it in the theater. I enjoyed it, but because we didn't really go into the ocean much where I grew up (Alaska), it didn't really scare me. I actually got into sharks a little bit, kind of like a lot of kids get into dinosaurs, but it didn't last long.

I read that the 2 actors didn't like one another.

You can see some of it in this

This film had a huge impact here in the UK.
Cinema queues round the block not seen since 'The Exorcist' the previous year, but without the Religious Zealots' pickets.
Shark fever took hold of the younger generation, which although the shark was the 'baddie', it is said that the film contributed much to marine ecology and preservation in general, and sharks in particular.
I remember the screams from the audience at the anticipated decapitated head coming out of the scuttle scene, which looks so tame now!
