It wasn’t your typical jump-scare, no image of a hungry Great White Shark attacking a beachgoer. Instead, it was a scene in which a crowd boards a ferry on the Fourth of July, a seemingly innocuous moment in Steven Spielberg’s iconic masterpiece. In the shot, a female extra wearing a blue bandana over her auburn hair caught Hill’s attention. She was “almost a twin of the figure” in a forensic recreation image he recently saw of the Lady of the Dunes, the still-unidentified murder victim discovered in Provincetown in 1974—the very same year Jaws was filmed on nearby Martha’s Vineyard.

Super interesting and eerie. I was 17, when Jaws came out. I was one of the lucky ones to see it in a theater rather than just on the television screen. It was incredible then…and I watch it at least once a year now. I can’t wait to tell my husband about this possible murder mystery connected to it.
Truly a timeless movie. Everything about the movie is great, from characters to the build up of tension in the plot.
We enjoyed talking this mystery over at dinner last night. Thanks for posting it.
im soooo bored
