Saturdays with Spielberg #1: Duel

We kick off the marathon with a celebration of Spielberg’s directorial debut, the vehicular thriller Duel. Did Spielberg start off strong, or was his first film an embarrassing blemish on his impressive resume? Find out now in our first installment of Saturdays with Spielberg!

The Basics:

Businessman David Mann is traveling across a long and desolate road in the Western United States when he encounters the behemoth of a truck. At first, he thought nothing of it. He passes him once, and the truck only blares his long horn. But once he passes the truck again, Mann inadvertently causes a case of road rage upon the driver that can only end in one way…and with only one man left standing.

Cast: Dennis Weaver, Eddie Firestone, Gene Dynarski, Tim Herbert, Charles Seel

Written By: Richard Matheson

Directed By: Steven Spielberg

The Delivery:

Duel is certainly an interesting debut for director Steven Spielberg.
