A giant great white shark arrives on the shores of a New England beach resort and wreaks havoc with bloody attacks on swimmers, until a local sheriff teams up with a marine biologist and an old seafarer to hunt the monster down.
Early in the beach scene set on the Fourth of July, the music of Scott Joplin can be heard from the loudspeakers. Joplin's music was primarily used in The Sting (1973), which was also produced by David Brown and Richard D. Zanuck.
