In the first part, we had a chance to get acquainted with the main characters of the film and its main character - a great white shark, nicknamed Bruce on the set. We also learned how and by whom three mechanical shark models were made. We stopped our story on the first two victims of the monster. Today, let's see how the number of victims reached five, how it all ended and what happened to the mechanical Bruces after filming ended.
(Total 60 photos)
1. The public was reassured by a picture of fishermen with a trophy, and crowds of tourists again poured onto the beaches.
2. Screenwriter Peter Benchley made a cameo appearance as a reporter anchoring the July 4 broadcast from the Amity Sands.
3. Spielberg also appeared in the picture. He can be seen in the beach scene where he plays the clarinet in the orchestra.
4. View footage.
5. Celebrations on the occasion of July 4 with the annual regatta and the massive adoption of water procedures ended in another tragedy.
6. First, the local boys scared away all the bathers with a fake fin.
7. In the mass panic scene, local residents of the island of Martha's Vineyard were hired as extras who were supposed to scream and bump into each other.
8. Then the ogre himself appeared. In shallow water, he dragged a swimming instructor underwater.
9. Shooting scenes near the coast. Everything ingenious is simple.
10. Director with a film crew.
11. In photographs, Spielberg can often be seen standing in the sea. But not everything was so simple - Stephen was terribly afraid of open water.
12. The process of getting rid of a phobia.
13. Healing completed.
14. After the death of an instructor, police chief Brody, along with Hooper, go on a night reconnaissance boat.
15. By chance, they stumble upon the boat (seen in the photo in the background) of the missing fisherman Ben Gardner. Hooper descends into the water to inspect the ship and finds a huge shark tooth and the remains of a fourth victim decomposed in the water.
16. The same Gardner head that scared Hooper wildly.
17. The next morning, the mayor's convictions of the need to close the beaches begin again. Finally, Murray Hamilton's hero gives in and hires Quint to capture the predator.
18. This scene took place in front of the famous billboard, which was painted by hooligans.
19. Brody and Hooper visit Quint in his cabin and report the consent of the authorities. The film's old fisherman's house was built in a deserted area of Martha's Vineyard, but the island's municipality insisted that the crew dismantle and destroy the structure after filming, as it looked more like a garbage dump than a home.
20. Trinity goes to sea on the fishing schooner ORCA, owned by Quint.
21. Initially, the ship was called The Warlock and was white.
22. And here is the Killer Whale. In the people, this enemy of sharks is called Orca.
23. Preparation for filming on a schooner.
24. Robert Shaw in a fishing outfit.
25. Indeed, why not take a nap in the sun?
26. Before the shark smelled the bait and appeared out of the water, a lot of time passed.
27. Close-ups of the monster cause genuine fear.
28. Quint moved from spinning that turned out to be ineffective to more effective methods. Several harpoons with barrels tied to them were fired at the predator. This kept the shark from going under the water.
29. Break for medical examination.
30. Producer Richard Zanuck seizes the moment and takes the first ever selfie with a man-eating mechanical shark.
31. Spielberg and the jaws that made him famous.
32. Bruce: "Look who I caught!"
33. With the help of harpoons, Quint tries to drag the shark into shallow water, but it turns out to be so huge that a hole occurs in the schooner and the engine fails. The ropes that fastened the barrels to the ship had to be cut off.
34. Hooper then descends into the sea in a steel cage to try and kill the ogre with a poison dart.
35. Underwater cameramen Ron and Valerie Taylor.
36. The monster starts to break into the cage, and Hooper drops the gun with the poison arrow. He barely manages to fight off the predator with a knife and hide in a crevice.
37. An angry shark jumps out of the water, and the final battle on the sinking ship begins.
38. Preparation of "Orcas" and Bruce (in the background) for the fight.
39. Special Effects Supervisors Bob Matty (driving the boat) and Rich Helmer inspect the shark.
40. And cleanse it of salt.
41. Everything is ready, the attack has begun. The crazed predator falls on the stern with all its weight and breaks it into chips.
42. First, tackle and various debris roll down the deck to the beast.
43. And then Quint.
44. Practicing sliding in the jaw.
45. Quint in Latin means "fifth" - which corresponds to the ordinal number of the human victim of the man-eating shark in the film.
46. The actors have a break.
47. Members of the technical staff did not fail to seize the moment and took a couple of photos. Rich Helmer and Bruce.
48. Cal Accord in the mouth of the protagonist.
49. Cutie Bruce and hello to Ruddy Duck.
50. Robert Shaw.
51. And the director is worse?
52. When Quint was finished, the shark took on the chief of police. He fights off the first attack with a compressed air cylinder, which gets stuck in the predator's mouth. Brody manages to climb the mast of the sinking schooner, grabbing a rifle and melee weapons.
53. The monster manages to drive away a second time.
54. Snapshot for memory in between times.
55. During the third and final offensive of the cannibal, Brody shot from a rifle hits a balloon stuck in Bruce's teeth, and immediately blows his head to pieces. Hooper emerges from the crevice and, along with Brody, gets to the shore on the wreckage. End!
56. 1975, a few months after the premiere. The last known photo of one of the Bruces. Also in the picture is director Ingmar Bergman.
57. And this is 1980. The schooner ORCA at the location of the Universal Studios.
58. We would have ended our story on this if it weren’t for NRP reporter Corey Turner, who, after several decades, decided to find at least one of the original Bruces. He first received the following comment from former art director Joe Alves: "...when filming was over, the sharks were just left on location and they rotted." Then, on one of the Facebook pages, Turner came across a mention of the fourth Bruce. It turned out that the fourth twin brother was never used in the film. It was made from original drawings for the Universal Studios theme park in Hollywood, where it hung on its tail from 1975 to 1990. Later, the copy was nevertheless found by a reporter in one of the car cutting plants in Sun Valley, where he got with cars from the Universal transportation department, which were purchased by the owner of the establishment, Sam Adlen.
59. 2010 Fourth Bruce with Alves and Ron Arbogast (wearing a cap) who helped create the original sharks.
60. And in the park of Universal Studios in Hollywood, you can now meet such a figure.
