DUEL is a 1971 US drama about a male motorist who is pursued and threatened by a large truck.

Threat

There are several scenes of prolonged and intense threat, during which the male motorist is chased, and in which his car is rammed and threatened by the large truck. In one scene, the truck smashes a phone box and briefly chases the man. There is another scene in which a man's car crashes and his mouth becomes bloodied.

In one scene, two men briefly fight; however, there is no injury detail. There is another scene in which a man's wife tells him that a man 'was practically trying to rape me in front of the whole party'. There is some mild bad language ('shit', 'bastard', 'ass', 'hell', 'damn', 'God', 'Jesus').
