With the 35th anniversary of Steven Spielberg's classic blockbuster just around the corner, a reporter set out to track down the mechanical beast that struck fear into the hearts of so many.

In order to maximize their control over the creature, the filmmakers built three sharks for their 1975 movie. All created from the same mold, the sharks were dubbed "Bruce" after Spielberg's lawyer, Bruce Ramer. Perfect name. The gigantic metal creatures were 25-feet long and weighed hundreds of pounds. The heads alone came in at 400 lbs. apiece, with jaws the size of a small human! The star of "Jaws" has been found resting in a Los Angeles junkyard. Notice anything different about the parking lot other than the cars and trucks?

"It's the real one," Arbogast told Turner after examining the creature. "It's just kinda' nice to see it again after 25 or 30 years. It's amazing that it's still here." Bruce's discovery couldn't come at a better time. There's talk that Universal might be considering a 3D "Jaws" remake. (NO BEUNO)
