The action in "Jaws" is supposed to take place during Fourth of July Weekend in New England. At that time of year the temperature in New England, during the day, usually ranges from the mid-70s to the mid-90s (Fahrenheit)...yet, with very few exceptions, the cast -including the extras-are wearing long pants, long-sleeved shirts, heavy jackets, wool hats, etc. They appear to be dressed for autumn weather, not summer weather.
The producers gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of The Nation Geographical Society and Mr. L.J.V. Compagno of the Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University.
