Complex Says: This low-budget picture, shot in less than two weeks, was Steven Spielberg's made-for-TV film debut. Pursued by a crazed diesel-engined truck on the California highway, mild-mannered traveling salesman David Mann (Dennis Weaver) tries to escape harm's way in his red 1971 Plymouth Valiant.
