Here’s to swimmin’ with bowlegged women….

….and here’s to Jaws, which recently turned 35 years old. If there’s a better adventure film out there, I haven’t seen it. It’s amazing how the choices that Steven Spielberg and company were forced to make to contend with unpredictable weather and a malfunctioning shark actually worked for them instead of against them. Reams have been written about the troubled production, but whatever they had to go through to get the film finished was certainly worth it.

To celebrate, I chose a clip that is one of my favorite moments of the movie – the point at which Quint, Hooper and Brody finally bond – just as an ominous barrel appears alongside their boat.
