Episode 032: Duel (1971)

Genre Exposure: A Film Podcast

Apr 27 2022 • 1 hr 48 mins

In this episode, we kick off our next block focusing on made-for-tv movies AKA television films. Michael starts us off by setting the bar high with Steven Spielberg's Duel from 1971. Which, surprisingly, ends up being a first-time watch for Dustin. We also use it to finally have an excuse to gush over the works of Richard Matheson and his involvement in television and film. But before all that, like with every new block, we spend some time talking broadly about TV movies, their history, and their impact. And so much more!
