"I'll find him for three. I'll catch him and kill him, for ten�" Quint
Played By: Robert Shaw
Why He's On The List: The most colourful member of Jaws' trinity of heroes, Quint could well have been a stereotypical salty sea dog (with traces of Moby Dick's Ahab). But we really should know better, and from the scars scene through to the Indianapolis speech, Shaw reveals frail, fragile layers beneath the sea shanties and wild overconfidence. His death, spitting blood as the shark bites him in two, is profoundly disturbing.
Finest Hour: What else? The speech about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis. How Shaw didn't win an Oscar for that, we'll never know.
