I was watching a rerun of “Jaws” the other day, and a line of dialog seems to be chopped off. I was watching a movie channel, so I assume it was unedited.
If anyone remembers the scene in question is where Richard Dreyfus is going over the remaining body parts of the first victim. He holds up her arm and says “This is what happens…” and that’s it. It’s almost as if they cut whatever followed that sentence fragment and just threw it in the movie. I have a vague recollection of watching “Jaws” years ago, and thinking that Dreyfus finished that thought. Perhaps I am misremembering.
Can anyone fill me in on if that has been edited, or if that is the way it always has been?
Also, I can’t remember who said it or where I read it on this board, but someone made a great point about the head coming out of the bottom of Ben Gardner’s boat. I cracked up when I realized that when they were trying to convince the mayor that they needed to shut down the beaches, they talked about the tooth of the great white shark taken out of the boat. For some reason, they failed to add the fact that some guy’s HEAD fell out of the boat. I never picked up on that one myself, but now it really annoys me. Mostly because I never noticed such a large logical plot hole.
