"Jaws" Shark Found in Junkyard

Posted: June 7th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Jaws" Shark Found in JunkyardSubmit Comment
An NPR reporter, Cory Turner, recently went on a journey to track down the mechanical shark used in Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" movie. Apparently three copies were created from the same mold and where named Bruce after Spielberg's lawyer Bruce Ramer.

Spielberg's spokesman explained that all three sharks were destroyed immediately after filming, but Turner learned on Facebook that a fourth was created (from the same mold) for display at Universal Studios Theme Park.

In 1990, the shark was taken down and shipped out to a junkyard in Southern California. The reporter tracked the junkyard down and brought Joe Alves and Roy Arbogast, who built the original shark, to verify its authenticity.

"It's the real one. Definitely. It's from the same mold," said Arbogast after examining the creature. "It's just kinda' nice to see it again after 25 or 30 years. It's amazing that it's still here."

The original shark was 25-feet long and weighed hundreds of pounds. The head alone was over 400 lbs, with a jaw the size of a human being.

This article is almost as boring as all the people I know that listen to NPR on a regular basis. So they found it...then what?

"Jaws" Shark Found in Junkyard ... along with Steven Speilberg's notes on Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, Shia LaBeouf's talent, Megan's parts after plastic surgery, Michael Bay's brain and a copy of " Directing for Morons ", Zac Effron and Channing Tatum's personalities, Michael Cera's puberty and Lindsey Lohan's dignity.

@Max-That pretty much sums up what I coulda said lol.
@Trailer-you may be right, there are no more Planet Hollywoods

Mario Van Pebbles now patiently waits by his phone for a call to do a Jaws the revenge sequal.

Michael Caine on Jaws The Revenge:

"I have never seen it, but by all accounts it is terrible. However, I have seen the house that it built, and it is terrific"

Yes I'm sure "Evil Kev 2" has quite a few friends that listen to NPR. By that I mean No Personality Required. I'm sure you'd be more impressed with an article about finding Tyler Perrys' stack of the next 8,727 Madea movies coming soon to a outhouse near you. To sum up Jaws great, you not so much.

Some people go on walkabouts. Some people quest for the holy grail. This quack went and found a big hunk of metal named Bruce. Congratulations!
Must be slow day for movie news..

What amazes me more is that Hollywood can't count from 3 to 4.

Moreover... why does stuff like this get tossed. I know (now) we have the Internet. Some private collector or someone would pay handsomely for this piece of movie history junk (more than the headache and handling and shipping... so it would be WELL worth it). That's it... I'll be the new Sanford of Hollywood. Who wants to be my son?!

Love the John Williams musical score in Jaws BTW , some of his best work and it's just as important to the movie as the shark is...

And what's with all these people on doc*mentary's and such lately swimming with the Great Whites (no... not my d*ck, the shark!) without being in cages?!
trailertrash writes:
on June 7th, 2010 at 5:34:24 PM

Some of those guys in South Africa are crazy when it comes to Great White shark diving without cages.

One guy wanted to try to put one in a trance by placing his hands over the sharks face !!

No Thanks ....
