Random Thursday

So are you ready to be amused, bored, WOWED with more Jaws facts? Well I got more coming for you all!

Did you know that one of the original points in the story, involving this scoutmaster and his death was going to be a bit more...gruesome then initially intended?

So in the movie when we finally SEE the shark in all his 25 feet glory as he chomps down on this poor guy and he ends up losing a leg. Initially, the story was written that as he's being chowed down on and still alive (eep!) he grabs hold of Michael, like one would do, grabbing for help while you're being eaten alive by a killer shark! He was going to hold onto Michael until the shark disappeared down into the ocean with him.

But thankfully, Steven saw that this might be a bit too much, too graphic. So instead Michael just watches nearby and our scoutmaster with shark glance at him as he swims below the water!

And remember these are all true facts regarding the movie! I learned most of them through the anniversary DVD booklet and few others from watching a documentary regarding the movie!

  1. This is an interesting tidbit! I love Jaws and I love movie trivia! To be honest, I would love to see a Jaws reboot. People have become very desensitized. While this was terrifying in it's time, it's pretty mild by today's standards. I made my 20 year old brother watch it for the first time last year. It went off and he said, "that was it?" He doesn't even watch horror and he wasn't fazed! Haha! Thanks for sharing!
