OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN in the movie JAWS (1975) - FACT!

Can you name the scene where singer Olivia Newton-John is heard in the film Jaws?

She sung "I Honestly Love You", right?
Don't remember the scene, though...

I think they used her singing voice for the sound of Quint sraping his nails across the blackboard, but I could be wrong.

It was one of the beach scenes...just playing on the radio. That's not exactly being IN the movie, Buttmunker. It's not like she and John Tavolta are dancing on the beach during a shark attack.

I'm going to guess the "bad hat, Harry" sequence.

HAHAHA. Right you are. And up until this weekend, I never noticed that song playing on the radio. Funny what new things pop up for you in an old movie that escaped your notice.

Wow, talk about one of the most misleading thread titles ever. Kinda like asking if you can find Jim Morrison in Apocalypse Now.

I was expecting a walkon on the beach or something.
They need to put one of those padlocks on this thread.

Silly thread, but what a great movie.

I just watched it the other night, and it still holds up as one of my top three ever. So much more than just a "summer popcorn flick", although I guess it started that trend.

Her song is playing on Chief Brody's radio on the beach right before Alex Kitner is eaten off his raft.

One positive thing about this thread is that it has made me fondly recall the "It's a Fact"-Girl from The Kids In The Hall

When I saw the topic header, the first thing that crossed my mind was that song heard on the radio, so it wasn't misleading to me. I think this was also the song that had been replaced in an earlier video release due to a rights issue; there was some disclaimer or fine print on the boxes mentioning it.

Forgive another aside, but when a thread about one of my top three movies comes up, I must post random thoughts.

Normally, I don't like to own bad movies (well, many might call them bad, but I only keep what I enjoy). But with Jaws, my love for the original compels me to own the lousy sequels. I guess 2 wasn't too awful, but 3 and 4, ugh.

Another sign that I'm addicted I guess.

At least 3 had Lea Thompson
