Roy Scheider died today.
Makes me wistful.
Jaws was one of Keith's favourite films. It's one of mine.
"Beast..." owes Jaws a huge debt.
Once, years ago, Mr. Scheider was in town shooting some movie... (I've forgotten what, but for som reason I also think that I did make a point of seeing it.) ...Keith and I discussed trying to find him and see if we couldn't get him to do an interview on camera that we might find a use for. This eventually led to what is now the 'expert interviews' in the film.
Anyhow, it's been a long time since a post. I felt like this event was worth acknowledging.
