Duel is legendary Hollywood director Steven Spielberg's first feature-length film. The 1971 flick pits a ghost-driven 1955 Peterbilt 281 tanker truck against an anemic Plymouth Valiant, driven by a travelling salesman played by Dennis Weaver.
Essentially 74 minutes of serious road rage, the menacing Peterbilt gets annoyed that it has been passed on a two-lane highway in the California dessert, and spends the rest of the movie trying to show the little Valiant who owns the road. Not to give too much away, but in the end, the Peterbilt gets it.
