"Other Worlds Than These" episode 022.

022: The Jaws Log.

If you care about Jaws (and you should--it is one of the great genre films), there's a fine making-of documentary available on the Jaws 30th Anniversary DVD.

After watching the documentary, if you're hungry for even more film-crew-versus-shark action, check out The Jaws Log, Jaws screenwriter Carl Gottlieb's memoir about the movie.

It's no surprise that Gottlieb knows how to tell a story. But I was surprised to find out that Gottlieb's tale of the troubled production is a real page-turner, even reading it with the knowledge that Jaws would become the prototypical blockbuster.
