Richard Dreyfuss talks 'Jaws,' civics, the genius of Steven Spielberg and more



How many times has Richard Dreyfuss seen Jaws over the years?

"Oh, s--t," he laughed. "I couldn't count.

"You know Jaws has turned into one of those films that when you see it on TV, you turn it on and you can't turn it off. So, in that regard I've seen it a million times.

"It's the only film I'm aware of that could be released now for the first time, and have the same impact that it did then. You can't say that about a lot of movies."

Dreyfuss will take questions from the audience at a rare 40th anniversary screening and talkback at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre on Saturday. Tickts are $39.50 and up. Click here for details.
