No fooling, I thought this was the same guy for many years! Richard Kiel, however, was a huge 7 ft 2 while Jack O' Halloran, though still a big guy, stood at 6 ft 6. It did dawn on me that 'Jaws' didn't seem quite as ominous and imposing in some movies and now I know why...it wasn't him! Anyway, it was R.K. who was the popular Bond villain in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker and the treacherous Drazak in Force 10 From Navarone. It was J.O. who was Moose in Farewell My Lovely and Zod's henchman in the Superman movies. He was also in the '76 King Kong as Perko, a key member of the search party. Of course we already touched upon J.O.'s resemblance to a famous ball player in the "Tough-Guy" Baseball Cards section.
