Rare Jaws Photos To Be Auctioned For $30,000

Do you have $30000 spare and a massive Jaws fan?  Well these rare and fantastic photos could be yours.

Rare behind-the-scenes photographs taken on the set of classic movie Jaws are to be sold at auction after surfacing almost 40 years later.
The pictures include shots of star Roy Scheider, who played shark-hunting police chief Brody in the legendary 1975 film, and director Steven Spielberg.
There are also several pictures of the giant mechanical rubber shark that wreaked terror on the fictional seaside resort of Amity.
Along with the photo album, the archive includes red and orange life jackets worn by Spielberg, Scheider and co-stars Robert Shaw who played 'Quint' and Richard Dreyfuss who starred as 'Hooper'.
The life vests are marked with 'Jaws' and 'Orca'.
The archive was amassed by a nautical technician who worked on the set.

It is being sold by his family through Nate D Sanders auctioneers of Los Angeles with a pre-sale estimate of $30,000.
Numerous documents make up the collection including 'shooting call' sheets issued to the cast and crew.

One of the sheets is dated September 18, 1974, when three scenes were shot which were 'Alex Kintner's death', 'Brody and Hooper swim in' and 'Brucie's demise (the explosion)'.
Brucie was the nickname given to the model shark and the remark refers to the penultimate scene in which Brody blows it up by shooting an oxygen canister in its mouth.

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
