Dead fisherman prop from Jaws...

In Steven Spielberg's classic 1975 movie, Jaws, Police Chief 'Martin Brody' (Roy Scheider) and Marine Biologist 'Matt Hooper' (Richard Dreyfuss) investigate a series of shark attacks around Amity Island.

Scouting aboard Hooper's boat they discover the wreckage of a half-sunken boat belonging to local fisherman 'Ben Gardner' (played by Craig Kingsbury), who went out hunting for the killer shark.

Exploring the sunken vessel underwater, they discover a giant shark's tooth and the severed head of the fisherman, which makes Hooper drop the tooth in shock.

This special make-up effect from Jaws was on display at Universal Orlando's Horror Make-Up Show in Florida on September 23, 2010.
