Based on Jaws author Peter Benchley’s novel of the same name, The Deep was a box office success back in ’77, but, as an actual piece of cinema, it’s quite underwhelming. So, basically, we’re advising you don’t head off and rent it after reading this, even though it’ll be difficult to not want to have a closer look at Jacqueline Bisset, pictured above in all of her stunning glory.

Even if older film-lovers can’t remember every detail about the otherwise mediocre flick, they’ll most likely cite the scene in which Bisset swims underwater for an extended period of time in a skin-clinging wet T-shirt. The English knockout was one of the preeminent sex symbols of her day, and The Deep’s hypnotically arousing diving scene remains her greatest contribution to the art-form. She could also act pretty well, too, but that’s beside the point.
