The Conversations: Jaws

Just in time (sort of) for the end of the summer blockbuster season, The Conversations series continues with a look at Jaws. Steven Spielberg's wide-release 1975 smash is widely considered to be the first summer blockbuster, but how much does it have in common with the modern blockbuster? That's just one of the topics covered in this latest installment, which also includes appreciation for Spielberg's direction, John Williams' score and the performances of Roy Scheider, Richard Dreyfuss, Robert Shaw and even "Bruce" the mechanical great white shark. It was a fun movie to revisit and to discuss, so head on over to The House Next Door and join the conversation.
