Referring to the 1975 blockbuster Jaws, director Steven Spielberg states that John Williams' music "was clearly responsible for half the success of the movie." This suite features two of the signature musical sequences. In "Out to Sea," the trio of shark hunters led by police chief Martin Brody (played by Roy Scheider) heads into open water to find the menacing beast. This is followed by the "Shark Cage Fugue," a classically inspired and sophisticated accompaniment to a tense underwater scene in which Hooper (portrayed by Richard Dreyfuss) comes face-to-face with the great white in an all-too-fragile suspended cage.
