Doing this website has been a labor of love since 2004. The reason I made this site is because what was out there for information and photos about JAWS memorabilia was, in fact, not much back then. The laserdisc and DVD had barely anything, and there are great JAWS websites out there but the memorabilia sections needed a lot of work.
I made this site for reference only for the many fans out there who wanted to know about JAWS collectibles. Over the years I’ve received tons of emails asking me if this or that item was ever out? There are hundreds of items out there, that were never known about by many JAWS fans.
If you see an asterisk in some of the descriptions it means the item is very rare and it is hard to find. This way, if you have it, you’ll know that it is a rare treasure in your collection.
I truly hope that this site helps out the present and future JAWS collectors around the world who love this film as much as I do.
Robert Siegel from Blu-Ray.com contacted me a few weeks ago about an article he was working on about the new JAWS blu-ray edition. His article hit the web today, read it here.
Universal has remastered, frame by frame, the entire film under the supervision of Steven Spielberg. The release promises to become one of the best selling Blu-rays of the year. Added are new extra features and a remastered soundtrack, with the music score taken directly from the 35mm music stems. For this column, I have a co-writer. His name is Mike Smith and has been a Jaws fanatic (and I mean that in the best way) since the film was released. He has also worked within the industry to help create the new documentary on the release, “The Shark is Still Working.” Also of great help was renowned Jaws memorabilia collector Jim Beller, who owns what might be the largest collection of movie memorabilia for a single film. My heartfelt thanks to both of them for helping to make this column as good as I hope you will find it. So sit back, and take a trip down the Jaws memory lane. Don’t forget, on many graphics you may left click to enlarge them and on selected graphics, a double left click will make very small print easy to read.
