Re: "Jaws" a ripoff of Melville's "Moby Dick"
Hilarious notion. It makes no sense. Does Quint in the Spielberg film hold a grudge against the shark, and did that specific shark bite off his leg? No.
"Jaws" (the novel by Benchley and the film by Spielberg) does not insult "Moby Dick" in the least. What a weird idea.
