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 was a big fan of his. He was just great in "All That Jazz".
I always liked "Blue Thunder".

He's had a few 8mm releases. Aside from "Jaws", there's "The Seven Ups", "Marathon Man", "The French Connection", "2010", and of course, "Jaws 2".

I think there's room for just one more film.....

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.

Roy, we miss you, I liken him to the tough guy actor, like Lee Marvin. All business, no filler.

He was great on "Seaquest"

A first rate actor that always seemed comfortable and well suited in his roles, apart from Jaws, Blue Thunder and 2010 also stand out.

It's a shame, he really was a great actor.

His "You're gonna need a bigger boat" is one of the most famous one liners in modern cinema, and by the way: it was an ad-lib.

We find ourselves quoting it at my job quite often when things seem to be getting out of hand.

Scheider was also very cool in "52 Pick-Up". He made revenge so sweet!

It's upsetting to think that only Richard Dreyfuss of the threesome remains. One of the greatest films of all time in my humble opinion. I never tire of watching it.

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"

Farewell and adieu unto you Spanish ladies.
Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain.
For it's we've received orders for to sail for old England,
But we hope very soon we shall see you again.


What a great scene!

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.

David
