Shark adventure on the Great Barrier Reef
10 January 2002 | by (Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

40 years before Jaws, the Australian film industry produced White Death. Filmed off Hayman Island on the Great Barrier Reef, well known American writer and big game fisherman Zane Grey agreed to star in this sea-soaked adventure. The film looks a little creaky today, but is well worth watching for Grey's starring role, the Jaws-type storyline and the beautiful locales (though in black and white). Oldtimers in Proserpine and Bowen in North Queensland's beautiful Whitsunday region remember when Zane Grey came to town. Some such as the Lee family who ran charter boats from Proserpine worked on the film.
