“Jaws” was released on this day in 1975.   I will confess that I thought about the movie every time that I went swimming for years.    The movie was based on a best-selling novel by Peter Benchley.    

The film put Steven Spielberg on the map.   He went on to direct “Close Encounters of the Third Kind ” (1977),  “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981),  “ET: the Extra-Terrestrial” (1982), ” Jurassic Park” (1993),  “Schindler’s List” (1993) and “Saving Private Ryan” (1998).  

The soundtrack was great:
