The Egyptian’s Hit the Gas! The Golden Age of Car Chases series continues with Duel and The Car at 7:30. Spielberg’s first feature is also his simplest and most economical, a surprisingly effective thriller about a man in his car (Dennis Weaver) being terrorized by a big rig whose driver is unknown. Elliot Silverstein’s entry in the once-ubiquitous genre is more outlandish in conception, as the evil automobile in question may well be acting under the auspices of Satan himself. Both films screen on 35mm. For more, floor it to americancinemathequecalendar.com.
