The depth of Steven Spielberg’s filmography is only rivaled by the sheer number of iconic posters his films have spawned: the nostalgic portraiture of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, the wonder and hope of E.T., the mystique of Jurassic Park, but not even these can come close to the poster for Jaws. Eschewing any pictures of the film’s stars or lines explaining the film’s plot, Roger Kastel’s painting is masterful in its simplicity, with the naked girl’s blissful ignorance to the giant, killer shark lurking just below the surface summarizing the film’s plot and conflict in miraculous clarity. Just as Jaws changed the landscape of Hollywood forever, its poster became a landmark so iconic that it is relentlessly analyzed and imitated by marketers over forty years later. It's no wonder people were so afraid of the ocean.
