Today is Peter Benchley's Birthday, he died Feb 10, 2006. For those of you who don't know him, he wrote books. Yah, that's right books... Remember them? But not only did he write books, he wrote one of the scariest books of all time. Jaws. He later went on to write the screenplay with Stephen Spielberg to produce one of the first summertime blockbusters. Peter also made is so everyone going into the water gave it a second thought.
Peter Benchley is a dude that rocks. Grab your girl, and get a copy of the Original Screenplay or, better yet, the book and have a great read. Preferably on the pristine beaches of Martha's Vineyard. Below is a short "WAAF Rock-Doc" to get you in the mood. Enjoy.
