Robert Shaw and Bruce (the shark) taking a break on the set of “Jaws”

In the summer of 1975, Jaws was a box office smash. The movie had taken in over $100 million at the box office and was still going strong. The film’s director, Steven Spielberg, was on his way to becoming a Hollywood legend. But the production company had a problem: they were running out of money. The production budget for Jaws had been $8 million dollars, but it had gone way over that amount with all the expensive sets and filming on location in Martha’s Vineyard. The production company needed to cut costs quickly if they wanted to stay afloat financially. So they called in Robert Shaw, who played Captain Quint in Jaws, to come back and shoot some more scenes for the film with Bruce (the shark). H/T>
