    Oh, that's too bad! I loved him in Jaws and All That Jazz...
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I too am a great fan of jaws and Roy Scheider. It seems like all the stars that I remember are passing, I keep forgetting that I am aging too

    RIP Roy, and thankyou for being the great actor you are.

    Me too dingo!
    I never again swam in the ocean after seeing Jaws, the very week it premiered.. lol
    The movie first ran in 1975. It won 3 Oscars, another 9 wins and 13 other nominations for other industry awards.

    Thanks for showing us the movie poster.

    My job when we go to the beach is to stay in the carpark and keep an eye out for fins in the water .
