Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with the better late than never final Jaws video interview, with screenwriter Carl Gottlieb, I promised early in the week.
A few things of note here: One, I’m sorry the sound is low. Not sure what’s up with that, but it’s how the interview imported off the card. I’m not very well educated in the technical world (especially when it comes to video, as you can tell by these non-deinterlaced clips) and don’t know how to fix it all, so you’ve gotta live with it this way, unfortunately.
But, if you can get past that it’s a fun chat where we discuss the infamous log cabin writing meetings and he tells that great Robert Shaw needling Richard Dreyfuss story you might have glimpsed in the most recent episode of Harry’s Nerdist show.
Enjoy the video chat! We began by talking about Gottlieb being very nice to a teenage me at the Austin Film Festival way back in the day and continue on the Jaws geekout.
Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to watch the Blu. Incredible, isn’t it? I couldn’t be happier! Oh, and if you haven’t picked it up yet, be sure to check your local Best Buys. They have a digibook Best Buy Exclusive version that’s a little pricier than the regular edition on Amazon, but comes in super sweet packaging.
