"Jaws" is a 1975 film starring Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss that was directed by Steven Spielberg. There have been earlier DVD versions of the movie, but here I am describing the two-disc 30th Anniversary Edition.
"Jaws" centers around the story of a huge shark that terrorizes a New England beach community. An unlikely trio of menthe local police chief (Scheider), an aging fisherman (Shaw), and a young shark expert (Dreyfuss)team up to try to track down and kill the beast.
The DVD provides no audio commentary track, and the main bonus material is a two-hour 1995 making-of documentary. There's also a nine-minute 1974 video interview with the youthful Spielberg titled "From the Set."
In addition, there are deleted scenes and outtakes totaling over 13 minutes. Finally, the DVDs contain many archival stills broken out under the menu options "Storyboards," "Production Photos," "Marketing 'Jaws'," and "'Jaws' Phenomenon."
The two-disc DVD set comes packaged with a 60-page booklet containing a commemorative photo journal.
There are two versions of the "Jaws" 30th Anniversary Edition DVD, one widescreen, the other full-screen. They are identical except for the aspect ratio of the feature film. Below I've listed all the details for the widescreen version of the "Jaws" 30th Anniversary Edition DVD.
