A fun picture from @ClassicPics of a young Steven Spielberg on the set of “Jaws” in 1974…
The fake shark whose mouth Spielberg is climbing into was nicknamed “Bruce.”
When I was 10, and the movie came out, my friends and I all tried to impress one another by crowing about how fake the shark looked. Of course, in the movie theatre, it didn’t look fake at all. I avoided swimming in the ocean for the next five years. And now, 38 years later, I still think about getting eaten every time I go in the water.
