A (Sort Of) Jaws Reunion: Richard Dreyfuss meets Robert Shaw's granddaughter on Irish TV
All credit to Aint It Cool News for tracking this one down: Sixty-six-year-old Richard Dreyfuss, appearing on RTE, Ireland's National Television and Radio Broadcaster, was surprised, and absolutely floored, by a meet-and-greet with the 14-year-old granddaughter of the late Robert Shaw. The two men were in Steven Spielberg's 1975 game-changer Jaws, of course: Dreyfuss as heavy-breathing oceanographer Matt Hooper, the crusty Shaw as ill-fated shark-hunter Quint. Jaws is in my Top 5 (it should be in EVERYONE's Top 5), so this short, sweet clip left me blubbering. If they had trotted out any of Roy Scheider's kids, I would have had to call off work.
