FILMING BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1974

Director Steven Spielberg

Principal photography for “Jaws” began on the island of Martha’s Vineyard,
Massachusetts. The location was chosen because the surrounding ocean
had a sandy bottom that never dropped below 35 feet out from shore which
allowed the mechanical sharks to operate.
