Shrewd marketing reeled in readers and then moviegoers en masse as Jaws author Peter Benchley delivered another don’t-go-in-the-water hook, with added lures of sex appeal and violence. Sunny Bermuda turns ominous for vacationers Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset once their scuba sessions unearth sunken artifacts sought by both old salt Robert Shaw and crime lord Louis Gossett, Jr. Featuring a John Barry score that encompasses the Donna Summer theme song.

The 35mm print of The Deep we are screening is slightly faded red throughout with some parts more badly faded.



A film by Peter Yates
