'Jaws' Photos: On-Set Images From The Blockbuster Hit

Posted: Updated:

When Steven Spielberg's "Jaws" premiered in the summer of 1975, it gnawed its way through North American box office sales records, ultimately dethroned "The Godfather" as the top-selling film of all time.

The appeal of watching a team of experts pursuing a giant, deadly shark need not be explained, but it's still fascinating to take a peek behind-the-scenes of the blockbuster.

In "Jaws: Memories from Martha's Vineyard" [Moonrise Media], photos of local crew members, props and anecdotes are cataloged into one book with an introduction by Spielberg himself.

Check out these rare images, and let us know about your experiences watching this classic film in the comments!:
