David Mann (Dennis Weaver) is a businessman speeding across the California desert to attend an important meeting.  Along the way he encounters a large oil tanker moving at a slow speed, whose driver refuses to allow him to pass.  When Mann finally does pass the truck, it initiates a psychopathic game of cat and mouse with the truck's faceless, unnamed driver attempting to kill his opponent at every bend.

Making matters worse, David's meek Plymouth has a leaking radiator hose and could break down at any moment.  Eventually he will discover that running away is futile, and that he must confront the madman head on.

Duel won an Emmy and was nominated for a Golden Globe.  The picture was famed director Steven Spielberg's first feature-length film.
