"The shark isn't working!" 14 classic behind-the-scenes pictures as Jaws hits 40

20 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

"The shark isn't working!"

The above was a familiar cry during the making of Steven Spielberg's blockbuster classic Jaws. In an era before CGI, it was down to a giant mechanical great white (known as Bruce) to strike fear into audiences.

Unfortunately, the rubber recreation never quite functioned to the crew's wishes, leaving Spielberg to use John Williams's score and a point-of-view camera perspective to do most of the heavy lifting.

It proved to be a masterstroke - not seeing the beast made it ever-more terrifying, and when we did get a glimpse it was fast and violent.

As Jaws celebrates its 40th anniversary today, we look go behind the scenes with 14 classic pictures below.

1. Steven Spielberg makes a phone call beneath a terrifying piece of Jaws artwork

2. 'Bruce' takes a bite out of fishing boat Orca

"When I think of 'Jaws' I think about courage and stupidity. And I think of both of those things existing underwater." That's a quote from Steven Spielberg on his time directing the 1975 horror classic, which turns 40 this Saturday. Proving that sometimes greatness can spring from unimaginable misery, the film was famously a nightmare to shoot, with numerous production problems including the frequent malfunctioning of "Bruce," the collective name given to the film's trio of animatronic sharks. But don't take my word for it. Below are ten hellish behind-the-scenes straight from the mouths of those involved that will make you wonder how they managed to finish the film at all. 1. This is what happens when you hire a stuntman with no diving experience When husband-and-wife shark experts Ron and Valerie Taylor were commissioned to get footage of actual Great Whites attacking a cage (for the famous Richard Dreyfuss underwater sequence), the »

The Stars of the 'Jaws' Films -- Where Are They Now?

1 June 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

It's the film that made us all afraid to go back into the water: "Jaws."The 1975 movie, which opened 40 years ago today, helped launch the career of Steven Spielberg, was nominated for Best Picture and took home Oscars for Best Film Editing, Dramatic Score and Sound.It also made us all think twice before going for a swim.The flick, which starred Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss, would spawn three sequels -- "Jaws 2," "Jaws 3-D," and "Jaws: The Revenge" -- which randomly starred celebs like Dennis Quaid, Lea Thompson and yes, even Michael Caine. 40 years after the original movie's release, we've sadly said goodbye to a lot of the franchise's stars, including Sheriff Brody himself and young Judith Barsi, who played Michael's daughter in "Revenge" and was murdered by her father shortly after the film was released.From the tragic to the impressive, check out the gallery »
