Jaws was released as PG. If you’ve seen Jaws, this fact will probably blow you away. The movie contains multiple scenes of people’s arms getting ripped off, a man being eaten alive, and the shark even eating a child on a raft.
Not to mention the swearing, smoking and drinking that the film includes. At the time, though, the censors thought nothing of it and slapped a PG rating on it and called it good.
