This is part of a promotional piece I'm working on. I can only guess that my parents weren't paying attention when they bought my ticket to see this blockbuster in 1975. I have a vivid memory of being somewhere down front in the theatre, standing in my seat. The scene where Richard Dryefuss dives down to investigate a sunken boat and a dead body floats by the camera got a big scream from the audience and I can still see all the scared faces of the people in the seats behind me. For many years after this I thought anything sticking up out of a lake, river or creek was a shark fin.
