When Chief Brody is typing up his report of Chrissie's attack, he lists the date of the incident/her date of death as 7/1/74.

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.
