Films such as Thunderball and Into the Blue have been shot in the waters around New Providence but it was Jaws: The Revenge which is understood to have given its name to the beach on the western strand.
The third sequel to Steven Spielberg's 1975 classic, Jaws, features a giant great white shark which stalks the Brody family down the US Atlantic seaboard to the Caribbean. The tagline was: "This time it's personal".
Michael Caine played a washed up, amiable pilot named Hoagie who has a romance with Ellen Brody, widow of the character played by Roy Scheider in the original. The British actor claimed he never saw the film, panned by critics as one of the worst ever made, but that he had seen the house it bought and it was beautiful.
