Duel (1971) - (Dennis Weaver) Australian Daybill
This is a 13" x 30" Australian stone lithograph poster designed to promote the 1972 Steven Spielberg film Duel based on story and screenplay by Richard Matheson and starring Dennis Weaver as David Mann. Plot summary: David Mann is an electronics salesman from Los Angeles on a business trip in his 1971 red Plymouth Valiant sedan. Inexplicably, he finds himself in a deadly highway confrontation with the driver [Carey Loftin] of a 1955 Peterbilt 281 tanker truck, who seems to be trying to kill him by running him off the road or leading him into collisions with other vehicles. The hostile interaction continues through several stops along the road and finally ends with a mountain catastrophe.
