Today is officially the first day of Summer. I could waste a whole entry going through a list of the best Summer/Beach movies. But lets be honest, there is one Summer/Beach movie that rules them all, and also happens to be one of (if not THE) best movies ever made. Of Course, that movie is Summer Rental starring John Candy and Richard Crenna. Kidding, of course. Ah maybe I will still do that list at some point. But here and now it is time to pay tribute to the best Summer movie, and, of couse, that's Steven Spielberg's classic thriller, Jaws.
The other thing about "Jaws" is that it features two really good examples of good facial hair: the first being Richard Dreyfuss as Matt Hooper
and the other being Robert Shaw as Quint. Very nice.
There is a scene before the three of them get on the Orca where they are discussing the trip, and Quint is bleaching shark bones and making Brody drink his homemade brandy. Anyway he is wearing an awesome sweater in that scene. I have been searching for one like it, even though it is a sort-of turtleneck, which I have problems with, but it is still the coolest. Much like this movie.
