"You're gonna need a bigger boat." Steven Spielberg's monster hit, adapted from the Peter Benchley bestseller, didn't merely set box office records; it reshaped the fundamentals of the movie world, setting the template for how future summer blockbusters would be made, marketed and released. Though it spawned several sequels and countless rip-offs, Spielberg's original remains as deliciously unsettling today as it was in the summer of 1975. Starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss. DIR Steven Spielberg; SCR Peter Benchley, Carl Gottlieb, from Benchley's novel; PROD David Brown, Richard D. Zanuck. U.S., 1975, color, 124 min. RATED PG
