The French Connection was one of the first "grown-up" films I saw. He was great in that movie, and of course Jaws! RIP Mr Scheider.

I always liked Scheider. He has kind eyes.

The first R-rated film I ever saw in the theater was Blue Thunder. I remember sitting in my seat next to my mom and her friend. I was eating popcorn and drinking my dsoda and feeling very guilty about watching Scheider spy on a woman in her high-rise hotel room. I would have been much less uncomfortable if my mother wasn't there.

Thanks Scheider

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

Best line in the series.
