SpaFlick Friday: Duel

18 Jun


Hi Dad (waving) Happy Father’s Day!  This week we’re devoting Spa Flick Friday to one of my Dad’s favorite movies of all time:  Steven Spielberg’s Duel.  It’s easy to see why guys grunt and arrrrgggyyyah at Duel.  Little dialogue, one set, one actor, made for the puny (according to Hollywood standards) budget of $500,000, Spielberg  keeps it simple and goes for the gusto – keeping us guessing at every turn.

Also notable in this tete a tete between a car’s driver & an eighteen wheeler, this is the film that made Steven Spielberg a household word in Hollywood–and for good reason.  Watch it you’ll see.  So grab your Dad (and any other guys that happen to be around) and get ready for some serious adrenaline.  Let me know what you think.


The road rage is bound to get you both a bit stressed : ), so arm yourselves with a hand exerciser like this one from Theraband to take it out on.  If you don’t have one of these gel or sand filled squeezers – use a tennis ball.


No popcorn this week – it’s a holiday why not go for your Dad’s favorite pizza.  I like to buy flatbread, brush w/olive oil, cover with sliced tomatoes & fresh mozzarella & feta – then top away.  Bake 1t 375 for about 15 mins.


Nothing but a beer will do for this adventure.  Something dark just like the film – How bout a Guinness?

Spa wishes, Candy
