Chief Brody's widow believes that her family is deliberately being targeted by another shark in search of revenge.
Michael Caine could not accept his Oscar for Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) because he was busy filming this movie.
I have an irresistible urge to kiss you, Ellen Brody.
Ellen Brody: Why?
Hoagie Newcombe: Because... it would not occur to you why.
Michael Caine's plane crashes in the ocean, but when he climbs aboard the Brodys' boat, his clothes are dry. Caine explained that they waited so long for the camera to turn over that his shirt and pants dried in the sun.
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!
