Unfortunately due to technical reasons we missed a significant 5 min chunk of the movie where Quint delivers his iconic, emotive and emotional speech about the USS Indianapolis. We sincerely apologies for this and it was out of our control. Hopefully a brand new re-masterd digital print of JAWS will be released sometime next year and we can screen film in its crystal clear entirety then.
This doesn't make up for the real thing...but here it is...hope you enjoy it. It's a testiment to the power of acting, film making and storytelling.
Apparently Robert Shaw was ridiculously drunk when they we're filming this and he kept screwing up his lines. After several takes, Spielberg decided to call it quits, but Shaw, feeling awful about his shabby performance pleaded to Spielberg to let him have another go...he did and he gave this performance in ONE TAKE! Fuckin' A!
