Carl Gottlieb's account of the making of Steven Spielberg's classic shocker is a compelling insider's story of the making of a film phenomenon. Jaws grossed $100 million, won 3 Oscars and launched its 26-year-old director. Screenwriter Carl Gottlieb was on board throughout the production process, and chronicled his year-long adventure: a riveting portrait of a famously arduous shoot, complicated by clashing creative temperaments, pressures from the studio, bad weather - and sharks.

In 1975, a film by a young, unknown director based on a best-selling novel by an equally unknown author scared the world half to death and completely out of the water. Although the novel might have been the ultimate beach read, no one sitting near the surf while devouring its pages would even think about putting as much as one toe in the water; after seeing the film, they stopped going to the beach altogether. The film, of course, was Jaws, which became the first blockbuster ever to gross over $1 million and catapulted Stephen Spielberg and the Great White Shark into the public eye. Though Jaws is perfection on film, bringing the story to the screen was a series of disasters and mishaps in which everything that could have gone wrong did at least once. Gottlieb, who wrote the screenplay and appears briefly in the film as the newspaper editor Meadows, chronicles the making of the film in this 1976 volume. Jaws buffs, film students, and anyone interested in the motion picture business will enjoy this firsthand look at the process of making a difficult film. Essential for film collections.
