FILMING STARTED ON THIS DATE IN 1974

The 1975 summer blockbuster thriller Jaws was directed by master film
maker Steven Spielberg and was based on Peter Benchley’s novel of the
same name. Principal photography began on May 2, 1974 on the island of
Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. The location was reportedly chosen for the
sandy bottom of that part of the ocean. This helped the prop sharks to operate
smoothly and still provide a realistic location.
