Last Shark, The (1981)


aka's: L' Ultimo Squalo/Great White

An enormous and angry 35-foot Great White Shark takes revenge on humans when they build a beach just for swimmers by a coastal town. After several shark attacks, and the mayor does nothing to stop it, James Franciscus and Vic Morrow sail in pursuit to kill it.

Marketed in America under the title Great White, this film had a rather large advertising budget of over $4 million. Shortly before the film's release, Universal Pictures filed suit against the producers claiming the film was too derivative of Jaws. Universal won the lawsuit and Great White was pulled very shortly after its release. It was released in Spain as if it was the third part of Jaws (1975).

Actor Vic Morrow was to die tragically. On July 23, 1982, while filming a pyrotechnically complex stunt sequence for Twilight Zone-The Movie (released 1983), Morrow and two child actors were accidentally killed when an out-of-control helicopter crashed and fell on them.
