I recently bid on a 400ft Jaws digest on Ebay. I won the auction at £7. When the film arrived, it turned out to be the 2X400ft version, mounted on a 600ft reel. I need to make a custom box for the film and wonder if any members can help with a scan of the cover art. I'm not fussy which reel the art is from. Also, can anyone tell me the official running time of the two reels combined?

Hello...based on some info from the Jaws 2 parter on youtube some time ago the time was 30 min 48 sec.

John, why don't you use google and choose "image".

Write jaws image on the search box, you will egt plenty.

From there you can make your own cover except you are thinking re-creating the original box.

cheers,

John,

Send me your email and I'll send you a hi-res scan of this cover, where I've gotten rid of the running time.
Also, U-8 never released a 400' version of Jaws, just the 200' and the 2x400'.
