Jaws - “Smile, You Son of a Bitch!”

Here at Greatest Movie Deaths, we like to keep it to death scenes of humans or humanoids, but this one is just too good to ignore. A classic. The death of Jaws, well the first Jaws at least, the original Jaws.

In the film's finale, Brody(Roy Scheider) is the only one left to do battle with the giant monster. He climbs the mast of the sinking vessel with Quint's gun(R.I.P.) and aims for the pressurized air tank wedged in the shark's mouth. He fires shot after shot at the oncoming shark, but misses. Just as he takes his last shot he yells out, “Smile, You Son of a Bitch!” and hits the target. The oxygen canister explodes, destroying the shark and sending a geyser of blood and fish guts flying into the air.

Great way to celebrate this classic's 35th anniversary.

Is it just me, or does that last big piece of shark that lands in the water at the end look like a tuba?

Quint's demise was also a great movie death.
