'Still Waters: The Lifeworks of Roy Scheider' by Saurav Dutt

Hot on the heels of my (ill-fated) SHARK WEEK, it gives me great pleasure to announce/plug 'Still Waters: The Lifeworks of Roy Scheider' a new book by Saurav Dutt ('Stand Alone - The Films Of Mickey Rourke')
Although fondly remembered as Chief Brody from JAWS, Scheider starred in such classic movies (The French Connection, The Marathon Man) plus (one of my favourites) '52 PICK UP'
Author Saurav Dutt looks at his life, and times of this much loved (and fondly missed) actor. But don't just take it from me folks, here's a shameless plug from it's author

"Dear Roy Scheider Fans,

I am the author of a new biography on Roy called 'Still Waters: The Lifeworks of Roy Scheider' I think you will all thoroughly enjoy this. Please see below the publicity blurb and purchase details. Thank you for reading.

'Throughout his many blockbuster roles and performances, Roy Scheider emerged as one of America's most likeable and prolific leading men, thanks to his talent for playing an urban everyman that audiences could relate to and root for, despite his flaws and failures. He rose to fame in the early 1970s in the Oscar-winning films "Klute" and "The French Connection" and became part of film history after his roles as Martin Brody in "Jaws" and its sequel, "Marathon Man", as well as "All That Jazz". Author Saurav Dutt details Scheider's life and career from his upbringing, community theatre work and through every film he made in his varied and diverse career'

Now Available on Lulu, release on Amazon and Barnes & Noble in May/June" y-scheider/15534621?productTrackingContext=search_results/search_shelf /center/2


  1. I love Roy Scheider. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, it looks great.

  2. I converse with the author on IMDB, and he's one of the few good guys around there (in a sea of 'Trolls')

  3. Great idea for a book! 52 Pick-up is a classic!
