Every once in a while a film enters the pop culture that leaves a tremendous impact on both the reel and the real worlds. Jaws ended up launching the career of one of the top directors of all time, Steven Spielberg. It is hard to imagine that there might be no E.T, Jurassic Park, Close Encounters, or even Indiana Jones if not for the huge success of Jaws. The film was even blamed for a dramatic decline in ocean swimmers in the summer of 1975. A tourist board in South Carolina even filed suit against the filmmakers for damages to the tourist industry.
