Duel (1971)

Directed by Steven Spielberg; with Dennis Weaver, Tim Herbert, Charles Seel, and Eddie Firestone. A businessman driving across the country is menaced by a huge tractor-trailer, seemingly without rhyme or reason. Shot as a made-for-TV
movie (Spielberg’s first feature), producers were so pleased with the outcome that an additional 19 minutes of footage was shot and Duel was released theatrically overseas. The digital restoration from Universal Pictures to be
screened at the Capitol is of the wide-screen theatrical version. “This TV movie pout Spielberg on the map, and rightly so; superb suspense film.” –Leonard Maltin’s Movie and Video Guide.
