Jaws Lobby Card Featuring Deleted Scene Found In My Collection

Jaws Lobby Card Found In My Collection Mixed In With Jaws 2 Cards

Isn't it nice when you are looking through your collection and you come across something unexpected?  Well, that's what happened to me today when I was looking through my Jaws 2 lobby cards.  I came across one of the cards that is actually from the first (and of course best) Jaws movie.  The scene is actually the deleted scene where we see Michael being saved indirectly by a man in a boat.  The scene was deemed too gory for Spielberg's PG movie so the scene got chopped.  A nice find especially as today is the 45th anniversary of the classic movie.  (Genuinely, this was found today, 20th June.)



I spotted the card mixed up in my Jaws 2 cards and on the back it has a description in German.  Grabbing my Google Translate app, here's what it says:

The greatest box office success that has ever been seen in the USA is now coming to German cinemas: Steven Spielberg's dramatic shocker "The White Shark" proves that the 27-year-old director is not celebrated as "the boy on the film scene" for nothing  becomes.  The gripping story of a killer shark that turns a seaside resort on the Atlantic coast into a horrific scene was staged with Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss in the leading roles.  Wherever the shark appears on the coast in front of the Atlantic seaside resort of Amity, death and horror are all that the rescuers can register.  The huge killer shark takes victim after victim before the local police chief opens the hunt for him.  P 5 Photo: Cinema International Corp.  The biggest box office success that has ever been seen in the United States comes from German cinemas.



I remember picking these cards up from a collectors fair and if the price on the back of the bag is to be believed, I paid the grand total of £2.  It even came with a Jaws 2 press booklet.  Not a bad catch for this vicinity.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his 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 TheIndyExperience.com 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 the Ark scene.…

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
