"You're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat"

Good night, Roy Scheider. And thank you for the great work you produced. "The French Connection", "All That Jazz", "Marathon Man" and of course "Jaws". You played Gene Hackman's partner with tense perfection. Your Bob Fosse was remarkable, fearless and frighteningly convincing. I haven't seen "Klute" with Donald Sutherland and Jane Fonda, but I can't wait to rent it. And no one could have blown up that shark like you did. From your films you seemed like a great guy, and that impression is backed up in real life by your activism against the war in Iraq. We'll miss you, Roy!
