Happy Birthday, Robert Shaw – 1927 to Forever

Well, this also being Shark Week and all, I can’t think of a better clip to put up than Quint’s Indianapolis speech from Jaws (1975), not only one of the best sea monster movie of all time*, but one of the best movies of all time. Shaw’s memory of filming the scene might have been a little fuzzy, but we’ll never forget a word, never get sick of watching it, and get the same chills each time we see it.

Grab that first-aid kit! Too late…

*Yes, we realize great white sharks are not monsters, they’re wild animals. Kind of slips your mind while you’re watching Jaws, though… we’re guessing it would also slip your mind if you looked and saw anything resembling the above image coming at you while you were taking a swim.
