Chief Brody's widow believes that her family is deliberately being targeted by another shark in search of revenge.
A portrait of Martin Brody (Roy Scheider) can be seen at Amity's police office.
I want you, to get out of the water.
Michael Brody: What?
Ellen Brody: I want you, to get out of that terrible job!
Michael Brody: C'mon Mom, you can't be serious.
Ellen Brody: Damn! I'm serious.
When they spot Ellen from the plane, the shark is still a long distance from the boat. A moment later it is at the boat and jumps out of the water. The shark couldn't have swum that distance in such a short time.
Some British TV screenings have featured much un-doctored footage of the shark where you can see the machinery driving it. A six by three foot hole in the shark's stomach is clearly visible during the submersible attack and almost every shot in the following chase shows the machine protruding from under the shark. This is in large part due to the fact that the film was shot in 4:3 and matted for widescreen for theatrical exhibition, meaning that viewers were able to see the full picture, including areas that the filmmakers didn't want you to see!
