Season 0 - Episode 3
In the summer of 1975, terror gripped the nation as a 25-foot great white shark captured the world and Jaws made sure nobody ever felt safe going into the water again. Jaws was a huge success, breaking all existing box office records and grossing $470 million dollars worldwide. The film made director Steven Spielberg a superstar, won three Oscars and inspired numerous imitations and countless shark phobias. The music from Jaws is still recognized worldwide as the theme song for sharks. In this two-hour special, we'll celebrate this classic, looking back at the movie's origins; the adaptation of an enormous bestseller to the first real "summer blockbuster," and how Spielberg broke new ground in location filming, despite months of setbacks.
