"The most terrifying motion picture from the terrifying No. 1 best seller" is the tag-line on the poster for this classic film from 1975, and - given that just two notes of John Williams's score have elicited fear amongst swimmers of what beasts might be swimming below them for decades since - it's a pretty accurate pitch. The thriller about the attacks of a great white shark at a quiet New England summer town was mired in production troubles between its budget and schedule, but the then 26-year-old Steven Spielberg turned his second theatrical film into Hollywood's first blockbuster film. Nominated for Best Picture and the winner of three Oscars in 1976, Jaws was also selected for preservation in 2001 by the United States Library of Congress's National Film Registry as a culturally significant film.
