Lot # 428 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Shark Tooth Clapperboard

Stock #110089

A shark tooth clapperboard from the production of Steven Spielberg's shark thriller Jaws. A great white shark terrorised the community of Amity Island until it was blown up by Chief Martin Brody (Roy Scheider). During production, a small number (possibly 4) of clapperboards were custom-made in the style of the shark's jaws, in homage to the film's voracious antagonist.

This black-and-white wooden clapperboard has shark tooth-shaped slates, and reads "Zanuck/Brown Prod. Universal City Studios 02074", "PROD JAWS", "DIR. S. SPIELBERG", and "CAM. W. BUTLER". The slate operates vertically by pulling two metal poles, which are inserted on the reverse and affixed via elastic bands to metal screws at the bottom of the board. The clapperboard comes with a letter of provenance from assistant cameraman James A. Contner. It exhibits minor chips and scuffs to the wood. Dimensions: 31.75 cm x 28 cm x 4 cm (12 1/2" x 11" x 1 1/2")
