Directed by Steven Spielberg
I'd like to think that it's this scene that made Steven Spielberg a household name and pretty sealed his place in film history as one of the greats (or one of the overrateds, depends on who you talk to). Mechanical problems with the robot shark turned out to be blessing in disguise for him since it allowed Spielberg to be more Hitchcockian with his approach, which makes it more horrifying. The editing, cinematography and John Williams' iconic score made the opening death to the first true summer blockbuster Jaws a memorable one. The actress in the scene was great but says that the rig they had her in was actually quite painful and violent that much of her screaming in pain and fear was not really acting.
