Regular priceSale price
No Summer Blockbuster is perhaps more memorable & iconic than Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jaws’ (1975) . Based on Peter Benchley’s 1974 Novel of the same name, the Film was the first major Motion Picture to be shot on the ocean & grossed a record breaking $100 million in its first 59 days at the Box Office. Nobody can forget that memorable opening scene when Chrissie Watkins (Susan Backlinie) goes skinny-dipping & is violently pulled under the water. To achieve this scene, Spielberg used a variety of underwater cables which were attached to Backlinie so that she could be dragged & yanked to simulate the shark attack. This 8x10” still has been hand-signed by Susan Backlinie with the inscription ‘Chrissie, 1st Victim’. Not many of Susan’s autographs accompany this inscription & her public appearances are rare. This still was signed by her on 3rd June 2018 at the ‘Collectormania’ event, NEC Birmingham, England. Framed, measuring 10.5x13”.
