Episode 54: Jaws (1975)

Scott continues to take us back in time for a leap with Steven Speilberg to one of his favourite films – the original summer blockbuster and classic monster movie – Jaws. A great way to end the season, and an interesting starting point from which to leap into season 3! 

Season 2, Episode 27

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Director: Steven Spielberg

From: The Goonies

Chosen by:
Director (Scott)
Film (Scott)

This time we leap with Spielberg, who needs no description – one of the best directors in the history of film. Scott takes us to the first summer blockbuster Jaws!

Where are we leaping to?

Stunts: Dick Ziker

To: Total Recall

Chosen by:
Crew (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

Glenn chose Dick Ziker – stunt person for over 50 absolute classics with no idea where Mike would leap. We end up with 1990 Schwarzenegger classic Total Recall. Glenn is pleased Mike seemingly didn’t notice the Star Trek movie on Dick Ziker’s resume 😬
