Day 294 4/16/14: Brody’s Book of Nightmares

“Jaws” fans will recall the eerie, tense but oddly tender scene in which a nervous Chief Brody tries to understand the nature of the formidable creature that has “staked a claim in the waters off Amity Island” by flipping through a stack of shark books, the images of various grinning jaws and gruesome wounds reflected in his glasses. The wondrous blog Haunted Closet has lovingly catalogued and compiled all of the images from a 1968 National Geographic and books by Cousteau and others. I love the meticulous detective work of fans!
