Billy Reagan, owner of the Attleboro House on Oak Bluffs, dug up the photos with his family within the last three weeks.
One photo supposedly shows Spielberg sitting in a chair on the beach. Reagan said that two of his brothers were even in the movie.
The photos were first published by The Wrap. They came to light thanks to self-described “finatic” John Campopiano, who visited Reagan’s inn because that’s where Chief Brody and his family live in “Jaws.”READ MORE: Dog daycare van stolen in Wrentham
Reagan invited Campopiano to see and share the phones, which have never before been seen by the public.
One photo even shows a mechanical fin in the water.
Released on June 20, 1975, “Jaws” is one of the highest-grossing films of all time.MORE NEWS: "It's been relentless": UMass Memorial workers once again under pressure from latest COVID wave
