Outstanding performances as Police Chief Martin C.Brody in Jaws (1975) and in Jaws 2 (1978). Rest In Peace, Roy Scheider. You were a terrific actor.

He was a star in one of Hollywood's most iconic movies when he starred in Steven Spielberg's Jaws.

I think IMDB is more trustworthy than this site. They have links to the trailer like all over the internet if you google Roy Scheider or Iron Cross. I downloaded it and it looks AWESOME!!!

Jason VaughnApr 23, 2009

RIP. What an incredible actor. He will be greatly missed. Does anyone know about Iron Cross? It says 2008 on here but IMDB says 2009?

LisaJBLisaJBMar 23, 2009
