If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I never pass up the chance to work Jaws into a post. After all, it's my favorite flick and what I consider the finest fishing movie of all time. The film debuted over 30 years ago, so fresh Jaws fodder is not easy to come by these days...until Moonrise Media announced the release of Matt Taylor's "Jaws: Memories From Martha's Vineyard." If you're a Jaws freak like me that can quote Quint's every word, you need this book.
The production of Jaws consumed the small island of Martha's Vineyard for many months, and many island residents were cast in bit parts, used as extras, and hired to do everything from construct sets to run camera boats.
