I've seen the original Jaws probably 20 times, but as part of my day waiting for the AC repairman, and as yesterday was the 46th anniversary of the release of Jaws, I figured... maybe give that sequel a spin?
Jaws 2 (1978) arrived 3 years after the original, and had some of the band still in place. Scheider and Lorraine Gary reprised their roles, as well as Murray Hamilton as Mayor Vaughn, our canary in the coal mine that politicians don't actually have to worry about disasters or deaths they cause through incompetence so long as people refuse to ever admit maybe the voted for the wrong person.
Screenwriter Carl Gottlieb is back, as well as the same producers David Brown and Richard Zanuck. Even John Williams.
But, yeah, it's not Spielberg. Instead we got Jeannot Szwarc, who you may say: what else did he do?
