DUEL (Television Release USA 1971)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

—wonderful walk down memory lane in classic film-making techniques—offers a WOW! treatment for this thriller/action film. Director Steven Spielberg offers a parade of scenes and dialogue that capture the audience from the film’s beginning to its ending. When many movies, in recent years, have lost the technique this film shows, this movie relies on all the small nuances that create an outstanding production. The movie struts into theater release quality.  It’s original release as television entertainment comes as a surprise. Wonderful watch shows Dennis Weaver on a much higher quality level of acting than some other roles in the past years. This comes recommended as a good addition to the home video library.
