Robert Tessier

  1. Dick Anthony Williams,  The Deep,  1976.  In author Peter Benchlel’s follow-up tp Jaws, all the villians were black. Not a good plan for a movie, pointed out producer Peter Guber.  He thought of  switching the Algonquin Indian  Tessier from Robert  Shaw’s brother to the chief villain Louis Gossett’s  lieutenant,  Trouble was Bob was a perfect Kevin.  Enter DAW as Slake in what was not the Jaws 2 the makers and public were hoping  for.
