I continue to have great luck in my current hunting the intranet for cool pieces that are being sold from film makers personal collections so I was amazed to be offered this spectacular piece recently from the collection of Wiilam Grefe, an elder statesman of 60’s and 70’s cult movies responsible for Mako: the jaws of death, Stanley and Impulse.
Whilst working in Florida Grefe had the good fortune to film the shark sequences for “Live and let die”, Roger Moore’s debut and obtained a couple of props from the productions Propmaster including this fin.
Later the exact fibreglass fin would be out to good use in the Mako film, a script wrongly attributed to have been ripped off from Jaws but subsequently written prior and greenlit because of its success.
Here is the fin in all its grey glory!
Now to visit the local pool!
