|Our vacation spot at Hardings Beach in Chatham|
looks exactly like the beach where Crissy Watkins
went skinny dipping in the opening scenes of the movie.
I've read some new reviews of JAWS lately on The Dissolve, and I really noticed the Altmanesque overlapping dialog, but mostly the style seems dictated by his restrictions of time, budget, and creative control (he didn't have much).
The movie still scares audiences- I love the moment when Ben Gardener's severed head floats out of the hole in the boat - I knew it was coming and I savored the audience reaction. I honestly could not tell if there was a shriek on the movie's score, or if someone screamed when the head floated into frame. The audience was relief-laughing and murmuring about it halfway through the following scene (the billboard vandalism, see below).
|Love the nautical sports coat!|
|I keep all my ticket stubs, but I|
don't usually take photos of them!
(with George, Adam, and three 1975 throwback 'Gansetts- it was fun crushing my can in stereo with Quint in the movie!)
