The Valiant in Duel is definitely a '71. Its wheel covers were used in 1971 only. The most positive way of identifying it as a '71 are by the small turn signal indicators mounted on top of both fenders. Chrysler used body-colored indicators in '71 only, all other years had chrome indicators. Certainly, both the wheel covers and the indicators could have been changed on the movie car (or cars), but it seems unlikely that this would have been done.
Carfan is right. The Biscayne wasn't a police car, but rather painted with an exterminating company logo.

That was because he was driving on the freeway. And if I can remember there was one White-Freightliner truck with a reefer.

If these other cars are just background ones seen for ¼ second, it is not especially worth mentionning all of them...

I thought I had started watching one of my favorite movies today. The shots showing the speedo dropping, the temp rising, the oil light flashing, made me say "Duel" immediately. But wait a minute. Who are these two people in the familiar Valiant? And two people in the TRUCK? Well, turns out to be an episode of the Hulk. I've never seen such a use of recycled content. Blew me away. I love that kind of crazy stuff.

Duel, "Téléfilm"? :??: Je pas comprendre...

antp BE

2006-11-22 20:17

Bah il n'y a pas grand chose à comprendre : le film a d'abord été diffusé à la télé. Ce n'est que par après qu'il a été exploité en salles ;)
Quote Duel fait partie de la longue série des films du week-end (movie of the week-end) de la chaîne americaine ABC. C'est donc un film destiné, à l'origine, à la télévision, mais qui, à la suite de son succès, fut rapidement diffusé dans les salles de cinéma aux États-Unis et en Europe.

In one scene there is a passing International Harvester Travelall. The four door version of the Scout.

Can you give more details, i.e. approx time or scene description, so I can try to find it in the movie?


2007-01-29 04:10

There is a scene when the main character is trying to pass the truck. He is on the wrong side of the road and has to swerve back behind the truck again because the Travelall is coming toward him. In a couple seconds the camera shows the side of the Travelall and then the back as it drives away.

The first time does I watched this movie was in 1998 (I was 10 yo,and that's the same period of France 98 worldcup)
Stephen Spielberg's first movie, great.
But now all of performers in this movie were died (Dennis Weaver died in 2004)

j'ai revu le film hier a la télé, et j'ai vu qu'il manquait une bonne vingtaine de véhicule, du début du film, lors du départ de Los angeles vers le désert, et d'autre véhicule comme un éconoline ou d'autre camions lors de la scéne du café.

Actually, I thought his character did pretty well under very difficult circumstances and was victorious in the end.

Ford_Guy US

2010-08-19 00:40

I agree. Plus, that was the character Weaver was playing. If he had been a stronger person, this movie would have ended much sooner.

Commander 57 US

2010-08-19 20:13

And would not have been as interesting.

Blu_Ray has fake Widescreen matting as this movie was shot in 4:3 for TV

so better stick with the DVD which is in the correct 4:3

I believe a truck was missed. I can't seem to see the truck the trucker that David Mann attacked in Chuck's Cafe drove away in.

I can't identify the brand, but still, it is a good enough screenshot that somebody who has some knowledge of older semis can identify it.

Apart from the external door hinges it looks like a B series Mack to me?

Am i only one who spotted Mann's overall resemblance of Maindrian Pace from 'Gone in 60 seconds'? Even the license on his Plymouth says PCE...

2023-12-26 14:44

PCE is a common fake letter combination used on prop plates for movies.
