Robert Archibald Shaw (9 August 1927�- 28 August 1978) was an English actor, novelist, and playwright. With his menacing mutter and intimidating demeanour, he was often cast as a villain. He is best remembered for his performances in Jaws (1975), in which he portrayed a shark hunter named Quint, and The Sting (1973), where he played the conned mobster, Doyle Lonnegan. Shaw also appeared in From Russia with Love (1963), Battle of the Bulge (1965), A Man for All Seasons (1966) (for which he was nominated for the 1967 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), Battle of Britain (1969), The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974), Black Sunday (1977), The Deep (1977), and Force 10 from Navarone (1978).
Jaws is a 1975 American thriller film directed by Steven Spielberg and based on Peter Benchley's 1974 novel of the same name. In the story, a giant man-eating great white shark attacks beachgoers on Amity Island, a fictional New England summer resort town, prompting the local police chief to hunt it with the help of a marine biologist and a professional shark hunter. The film stars Roy Scheider as police chief Martin Brody, Robert Shaw as shark hunter Quint, Richard Dreyfuss as oceanographer Matt Hooper, Murray Hamilton as Larry Vaughn, the mayor of Amity Island, and Lorraine Gary as Brody's wife, Ellen. The screenplay is credited to both Benchley, who wrote the first drafts, and actor-writer Carl Gottlieb, who rewrote the script during principal photography.
