Fun facts. Did you know that not only was Robert Shaw an actor but was also author, playwright and poet and wrote the Indianapolis dialog that he told in the film the night before his character's death? And that the mechanical shark had a name - Bruce. After Steven Spielberg's lawyer. I remember Quint's death more than anything. He drowned in the novel and didn't meet the end he did in the film.Haha! After I saw Jaws, I always thought there was a shark under my bed at night, so for years I was scared to dangle my legs over the edge of the bed!
When the movie came out, I decided only to read the book. And that was enough; every night I feared my bed was shaking. Years later, I did watch the movie and it was one of my most ill considered decisions, lol.Being how I am, almost everything traumatized me as a kid lol,"The Exorcist" took it to a new level.
