Steven Spielberg | "Jaws"

After Speilberg's mega-hit "Jaws" (1975), with Robert Shaw and Roy Scheider, he was no longer just a director for hire, but a director who could sit in the main chair of any film he wanted. Speilberg was also credited with beginning the tradition of the summer blockbuster.
