Triple Feature: JAWS, 1975, 124 min. Dir. Steven Spielberg. Roy Scheider is a sheriff confronting crowds of sunbathers, self-serving local politicians and - most importantly - a monstrous great white shark over the July 4th weekend.
TINTORERA: KILLER SHARK, 1977, 85 min. Dir. Rene Cardona, Jr. While vacationing on the Mexican coast, businessman Hugo Stiglitz strikes up a friendship with local swimming instructor Andrés García and the two hunt for sharks - when they’re not busy chasing women. Such lovely ladies as Susan George, Priscilla Barnes and Fiona Lewis fall effortlessly into their arms, but a vicious tiger shark (“tintorera” in Spanish) is more problematic.
BLUE WATER, WHITE DEATH, 1971, 99 min. Dirs. Peter Gimbel, James Lipscomb. Three years before JAWS, an intrepid crew of filmmakers sailed from South Africa to South Australia in search of the great white shark. Full synopsis
