Did you used to hate the water, but can't imagine why? Do you feel a constant need for a bigger boat? Do you want the Mayor to close the beaches? If the answer is “yes” to these questions, you are a Jaws fanatic. Just When You Thought It Was Safe: A Jaws Companion by Patrick Jankiewicz splashes into the terrifying yet true stories behind the making of Jaws (1975) starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss, the film director Steven Spielberg based on Peter Benchley’s 1974 runaway best selling novel of the same name. The equally stupendous success of Spielberg’s suspense film spawned a string of sequels. Author Patrick Jankiewicz fishes out the production back stories, such as how "Smile, You sonnuva—” and “We need a bigger boat!” were created. He reels in all the shark's victims, including John Hancock, Lance Guest, and Dorothy Tristan, for exclusive interviews, and he harpoons of the sequels, Jaws 2 (1978), Jaws 3-D (1983), Jaws: The Revenge (1987). 235 pages.
