Actor Roy Scheider passes away

- Actor Roy Scheider has died, leaving a legacy of great films and performances.

My favorite Scheider film is Jaws, a movie I still watch occasionally.

The story, more about people than the giant shark that terrorizes the village, always reminds me of the Henrik Ibsen play, The Enemy of the People, must reading to understand how people can confuse economic well-being with what's best for a town.

A good story about Scheider's life is here:
  • From SF Gate

    I don't have a copy of the movie Jaws in my video library - though I do have the music and play it occasionally, or add it to a rockumentary.

    R.I.P. Roy...

    Shark on!
