JAWS may be the granddaddy of shark movies but it isn’t the only one from the 70s-80s to make a mark. For this intrepid blogger there are a handful of shark-themed movies from that same general time frame that made an impression and secured spots in my list of films that I really love. So with that in mind and in commemoration of Shark Week, I figured I’d share with the world some of my fave classic shark infested movies.
TMZ has reported that Richard Kiel, best known for playing the villain Jaws in several James Bond movies, has passed away at the age of 74.
Jaws is one of my favorite Bond villains and Kiel was great in the role. Click behind the cut to see a really cool video of all of the awesome that was Jaws.
