Roy Scheider's police uniform and concept sketches from Jaws...

As it's been over thirty-five years since the Steven Spielberg's Jaws terrorised the big screen, it was a bit of a thrill to see these concept drawings for the Great White Shark and especially the original Amity Police Chief uniform worn by Roy Scheider on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on May 7, 2013.

Robert Ellsworth was responsible for the men's wardrobe on this classic movie from 1975 and seeing this costume was really like seeing a little piece of movie history.

I've seen these shark sketches and schematics as part of the NBC Universal exhibit before, but it's nice to see them with an accompanying costume from the movie too.

  1. I thought the diamond on the police arm patch was yellow in the film?

  2. Interesting, I think you may be right. Maybe this patch was added to make the outfit look more authentic for display, or maybe it was a test version for the movie. Thanks for pointing out!

  3. I have seen screenshots with both colors.
