The Shark is Broken

The Shark is Broken

“You’re going to need a bigger boat.”


Cape Cod, 1974: shooting on JAWS has stalled. Steven Spielberg’s stars – Robert Shaw, Roy Sheider and Richard Dreyfuss – are stuck on a boat, frustrated by foul weather and a faulty mechanical shark. Awash with alcohol and ambition, three great white males start to bare their teeth.

The Shark Is Broken reveals the hilarious behind-the-scenes drama on one of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.
