A suspense classic and subsequent cult movie that "made" director Steven Spielberg, pitting a traveling salesman against a ten-ton tanker truck on a lonely stretch of highway. Emmy award-nominated for his work was cinematographer Jack A. Marta. The theatrical version shown outside of the United States, and lately in festivals in this country, runs somewhat longer with additional footage devoted to the salesman's home life.
