Jaws - Musical Chair?
In one scene, the captain is sitting in the fisherman's chair which is bolted to the deck of ths boat. The captain gets a nibble from "jaws" on his rod and reelwhile sitting in the chair. Later in the movie when "jaws" leaps onto the rear of the boat, the captain unable to stop himself slides into the mouth of "jaws" and is devoured. What ever happened to the fisherman's chair which has suddenly and mysteriously dissapeared? was it to enable "jaws" to have his dinner of 'captain sushi?'

This was just the nick-name gave the mechanical shark. It was named after his lawyer. The shark was not named Bruce in the film. It was just something for the crew to call it.

Yes they named the mechanical shark Bruce. That is a well-known fact but in the movie the shark has no name, it is just the shark.

Actually the shark did have a name and the name was "Bruce". That was the name that the film crew gave to the mechanical shark.

Although the chair is gone after the scene where the captain (Quint) is fishing in it, the hole in which the chair was inserted is visible. It is a removable chair. P.S. The shark's name is not "Jaws". This is the title of the movie because the shark's jaws are what causes the terror throughout the film because that's what it eats with. The shark does not have a name.

Who the hell names a shark "Bruce"?!?!?! It's like calling an Alligator "Fluffy"

The chair is called a "fighting chair", and on every sport fishing boat I've ever been on, it screws into a deckplate whe needed. When not in use the deckplate has a smooth screw-cap that fills the hole. These deckplates get very hot after baking in the sun for a few hours, so wear deck shoes!
