Why do so many people love the character Quint from the movie Jaws?

Because he's interesting, courageous, foolhardy, has a wicked sense of humour, isn't afraid to say what he thinks, he's had an interesting past ... I could go on.

Because he had an interesting back story...............being one of the crewmen on the USS Indianapolis.....
which was torpedoed and sank.......throwing much of the crew into the water........where they were picked off, one by one, over a period of days, by sharks.
Nic Cage made a movie about it.

Probably because he was gruff and abrasive, willing to say anything on his mind without fear of judgement. And he got eaten by the shark.
