This is an account of Steven Spielberg's first stand-alone film, Duel, a made for TV movie that first aired in 1971. This book chronicles the film's history, from the original short story by acclaimed writer Richard Matheson (16 Twilight Zone episodes, Somewhere in Time, I Am Legend) to its development as a teleplay, to its production under the direction of Spielberg. Spielberg provided the author with many rare documents from his archives, including multiple drafts of Duel's teleplay, the shooting schedule, shooting logistics breakdowns, production correspondence, storyboards, shooting maps, and much more. The film's teleplay (including the never-before-published script for the four additional scenes drafted by Spielberg and the film's producer for the theatrical edit) are all included in this book.
