A Fourth of July favorite in the Fun Size household is Steven Spielberg's Jaws. One of the film's most iconic scenes is Quint's monologue recalling his terror-filled experience after the sinking of the USS Indianapolis. His delivery and evocative descriptions of the sailors trying to survive in shark infested waters for weeks until their rescue makes it just as frightening as any shark attack we actually see in the film. But how did Quint come up with such a perfect recounting of his experience? Was his speech improvised? Were Chief Brody and Hooper the only two people he shared it with? 

Well, Quint 58 from Jack Bennett (another favorite in the Fun Size household) and Frank H. Woodward answers those questions! Check it out!
