Jaws

The summer cinema of 1975 was dominated by Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster, Jaws, based on Peter Benchley’s best selling novel.

It had everything – drama, action, genuine shocks, humour, one liners, and of course that iconic soundtrack.

The trio of male leads had fantastic chemistry, and it’s hard to think of many sequences to beat Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss and Roy Scheider in that (not big enough!) boat.

With scenes much imitated and parodied, Spielberg gave a master class in shooting action and building tension.

As a result, the film remains one of cinema’s best loved and re-issued and re-watched movies.

And for film fans and poster collectors, the original movie poster image by Roger Kastel has a place in history.  Instantly recognisable, and highly sought after.

Original advertising materials from the movie’s initial release are harder and harder to come by, and as a result, their value continues to rise.

This is an original US One Sheet poster from the movie’s original release in 1975.  The iconic shark design by Kastel has made the poster one of the most collectable “modern” posters.  And this is the domestic version, with the Parental Guidance box and the warning that the movie May Be Too Intense For Younger Children.
