Links Duel at Core for Movies

The extras have been ported over from Universal's 2003 "Collector's Edition" DVD of Duel, minus the production notes. •A Conversation with Steven Spielberg (480i; 1.33:1; 35:44): In this 2001 documentary, Spielberg speaks at length about the making of Duel, providing fascinating technical detail about how he was able to make the film on location and still (almost) meet the tight production schedule, despite the dire predictions of his studio-assigned production manager. Spielberg's recall for how individual shots were accomplished and for specific technical challenges is astonishing. •Steven Spielberg and the Small Screen (480i; 1.33:1; 9:27): This featurette provides an overview of Spielberg's "journeyman" work for TV, including Rod Serling's Night Gallery, Columbo and Marcus Welby, M.D. •Richard Matheson: The Writing of Duel (480i; 1.33:1; 9:24): The author describes the origin of the short story, which was inspired by his own frightening encounter with a truck on the day of the Kennedy assassination. He proceeds to discuss the film adaptation, distinguishing between what he put on the page and what Spielberg (and Weaver, whose performance Matheson praises) added on their own. •Photograph and Still Gallery (1080p; various; 3:30): The slide show plays on its own and is composed of production stills, behind-the-scenes photos, posters and lobby cards. •Trailer (480i; 1.33:1; 1:00).
