When a young woman is killed by a shark while skinny-dipping near the New England tourist town of Amity Island, police chief Martin Brody wants to close the beaches, but mayor Larry Vaughn overrules him, fearing that the loss of tourist revenue will cripple the town.

Winner of three Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and a Grammy, Steven Spielberg’s 1975 film was the most successful motion picture of its time and inspired a generation of filmmakers. Based on Peter Benchley’s novel inspired by the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916, the film features the iconic animatronic shark (named Bruce) as well as an unforgettable score from John Williams.
