The ultimate summer blockbuster. The small community of Amity Island is plunged into chaos when the chewed remains of a young woman's body are found on the beach. Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) wants to err on the side of caution: he's got two young children to think about and doesn't even like the water. But the mayor (Murray Hamilton in an amazing anchor-print blazer) would rather keep the beaches open during tourist season so that local businesses can make money. When more people are killed, marine biologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) is brought in and confirms the worst: the cause is an unusually large great white shark. Brody reluctantly sets off to capture the monster on an old-fashioned boat called The Orca along with Quint (Robert Shaw), its equally old-fashioned captain.
