Overview

Winner of three Oscars and the highest-grossing film of its time, Jaws was a phenomenon, and this is the only book on how twenty-six-year-old Steven Spielberg transformed Peter Benchley's number-one bestselling novel into the classic film it became.

Hired by Spielberg as a screenwriter to work with him on the set while the movie was being made, Carl Gottlieb, an actor and writer, was there throughout the production that starred Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss. After filming was over, with Spielberg's cooperation, Gottlieb chronicled the extraordinary yearlong adventure in The Jaws Log, which was first published in 1975 and has sold more than two million copies. This expanded edition includes a photo section, an introduction by Benchley, and an afterword by Gottlieb that gives updates about the people and events involved in the film, ultimately providing a singular portrait of a famous movie and inspired moviemaking.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To coincide with the 30th anniversary of the film that invented the summer blockbuster, Newmarket is releasing this insiders' portrait of Jaws in its first-ever hardcover. Gottlieb, who both cowrote the script with Jaws novelist Peter Benchley and appears in the film, provides a blow-by-blow account of Jaws's troubled production history-it came this close to being scrapped. Among the best "making of" titles, the anniversary edition includes a new foreword by Gottlieb, an introduction by Benchley, 22 pages of behind-the-scenes pix, and an endnotes section of updates and additional production details. Essential for all film collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
From the Publisher

"Carl Gottlieb's The Jaws Log stands firmly at the top, easily the greatest 'making-of' book ever written." —Rod Lurie, director of The Contender and The Last Castle

"The 'making-of' story is nearly as good as the film itself…Gottlieb's behind-the-scenes account of the production is riveting." —Peter Biskind, author of Easy Riders, Raging Bulls

"To this day my favorite piece of 'making-of' material. It's like a little movie director bible." —Bryan Singer, director of X-Men and The Usual Suspects

"Steven Soderbergh has been like this ever since he saw Jaws and became obsessed, seeing it again and again, and reading and rereading The Jaws Log by Carl Gottlieb, highlighting things in it and going through several copies, wearing them out." —Rolling Stone

    The actual novel is better!
