This Movie Changed My Life! I want this film
21 July 2001 | by (Jacksonville Fl.) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 12. It was the movie that sparked my interest in sharks and the ocean. I have dived with 1000's of sharks in my life and I remain devoted to their salvation. I would pay a lot of money for a copy of the film or a tape of it. I have tried to locate it a number of times. This film needs to be saved and preserved for all time. It is the most important film on the subject of sharks ever made because it is the first of it's kind. It contains historic footage of whaling and the first search and filming of The Great White Shark. This movie is why I became a diver and a dive instructor. This movie needs to be seen by people for years to come.
