Spielberg’s masterpiece could have had a very different title. The movie is based on Peter Benchley’s novel of the same name. Before settling for Jaws, the writer considered other titles; some of them pretty cool such as The Stillness in the Water, Leviathan Rising, The Jaws of Death, and The Jaws of Leviathan.
But when Benchley couldn’t think of a title in the first place, his father Nathaniel suggested What’s That Noshin’ On Ma Leg. Would the film have been so successful with that funny name?
