A Suspenseful Film,
This review is from: Duel [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This movie was made as an ABC "movie of the week" and was movie directorial debut of Steven Spielberg. He had just finished the first Colombo episode and this was his chance to direct a movie. He had ten days, yet it took thirteen, too film this movie and did it all on location. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat yet keep you entertained. Dennis Weaver stars as a man who ends up being harassed and placed in dangerous situations by a truck driver. The co-star of this movie is the old Peterbilt truck that is the antagonist. This is an excellent movie of suspense reminiscent of a Hitchcock film. A fantastic first movie and another great acting job by Mr. Weaver.
The Special features of this collector's edition include the making of the movie with Steven Spielberg, the author speaking about the writing of the short story and script and Spielberg's other work on television. Plus the standard trailer, gallery, production notes and biographies of cast and of the filmmakers.
