“A duel is about to begin between a man, a truck, and an open road. Where a simple battle of wits is now a matter of life and death.”

Originally a 1971 made-for-TV “Movie of the Week” thriller in the United States, Steven Spielberg’s feature-length film debut “DUEL” was so successful it was later released in theatres across Europe and in the UK. One of the ultimate ‘car-chase’ films and rightly regarded as a classic of the genre comparable to “Vanishing Point” & “Bullitt”. The original 1983 US one sheet movie poster offered here is from the 1983 release and displays and presents to excellent effect with some eye-catching all action ‘Killer Truck’ imagery unique to this release. Originally rolled (as issued) this scarce and desirable unrestored film poster is is a fine example of rare and collectible original movie memorabilia from a hugely influential film of the early 70’s.
