DUEL by Spielberg is one of my favorite movies
Avatar 8:23pm dale:

duel on a big screen! dennis weaver really violates the conditions of the warranty on his plymouth valient
Avatar 8:24pm Joe McG:

@Tommy: That movie is a killer diller.
Avatar 8:25pm dale:

a lot of the footage from duel was used in an episode of the incredible hulk with bill bixby. i guess then it was just considered an old movie and not a classic.
