JAWS Author PETER BENCHLEY Rare Sketch Original

Lot 0293 Details

Description
Peter Benchley (May 8, 1940 - Feb. 11, 2006) was an American author and screenwriter. Widely known for the bestselling novel "Jaws", Benchley also co-wrote its subsequent film adaptation with Carl Gottlieb. Several more of his works were also adapted for cinema, including "The Deep", "The Island", "Beast", and "White Shark". None would have the lasting impact and importance in film tham "Jaws!" Later in life, Benchley came to regret writing such sensationalist literature about sharks, which he felt encouraged excessive fear and unnecessary culls of such an important predator in ocean ecosystems and became an outspoken advocate for marine conservation. Signed FDC also includes Rare, hand-drawn 'Shark' sketch. Custom framed in our new 'Signature Series' presentation. Framing details below.
