SH, SH, SH...SHARK!

  Steven Spielberg's 1975 film adaption of Peter Benchley's best selling novel Jaws invented the summer blockbuster and did much to mythologize sharks as remorseless killing machines (to Benchley's eventual chagrin). It also led to a mini-film industry which exists to this day whose sole purpose is to perpetuate the myth that sharks are specifically intent on destroying mankind (who am I to say they're not?) .
