Duel Movie PosterStop by the Tenley Library for a screening of May's "On the Road" movie.

Duel is an intense psychological thriller in which a businessman (Dennis Weaver) in a hurry to get to a meeting passes a slow 18-wheeler.  The offended anonymous truck driver proceeds to terrorize Weaver along the road. Based on a short story by master-writer, Richard Matheson (I Am Legend), this 1971 made-for-TV movie was Steven Spielberg’s first feature-length film. (Unrated, but it is too intense for young children.)
