Duh Nuh: Jaws' 40th Anniversary

Duh nuh.  

Two notes.  If you are one of the millions who has seen Jaws since its release in 1975, the hairs on the back of your neck are already standing up.

Celebrate this month's 40th anniversary of Jaws, the Steven Spielberg summer classic based on the bestselling novel by Peter Benchley, with a splash . . . and a scream.

Just in time to make his Father's Day, Jaws is returning to select theaters nationwide (including cinemas in Denton, Dallas and Houston).  Featuring a special introduction by Turner Classic Movie host Ben Mankiewicz, the film that made "You're gonna need a bigger boat" (improvised by the film's star Roy Scheider) one of the best-known lines in movie history can be seen on the big screen June 21 and 24, 2015.  Check Fandango for showtimes in your area.

Can't make the film?  Two copies of Jaws are available for checkout, as of press time, from the TWU Libraries.  You could take the book, with its slightly different ending (I'm not telling), to the beach . . . just don't go in the water.  

Duh nuh.
