Scheider was a workhorse of an actor on films and TV. He was a real pro, always adding to the film by his presence. Jaws was probably his most remembered movie. Time to replay that great 200ft Jaws digest.

I always felt that he was underated as a movie actor.Aside from the titles you named Doug;what else did he do?.I will always remember him,along with Shaw and Dreyfuss From JAWS.Andy. PS Maybe the best threesome ever commited to film.

Your right there John, I'll be running my 16mm print of all that jazz soon, he was great in that one but i agree Jaws is what most people will remember him by, "we'r gonna need a bigger boat"

I remember running the first day screening of 2010: The Year We Make Contact in 70mm. We had some complaints about the 6 channel magnetic sound. I went down into the theatre to check and it was the scene where Roy is talking to the Russian at the radio telescope. Half the dialogue was there, the rest blank!
It turned out that some of the mag tracks had been wiped due to faulty heads in a preview screening. We had to revert to our 35mm scope back up print. It was still a great film that I would love to see again. RIP Roy.
