Duel & The Distributor - Richard Matheson

Edited by Matthew Bradley. Published by Gauntlet Press.

Duel and the unproduced The Distributor (both based on novellas by Richard Matheson) form companion pieces in these unpublished works by Matheson. We included the story and the screenplay of both Duel and The Distributor

Duel was adapted by Steven Spielberg and became his first major work. The Distributor was written in the sixties and was deemed as "ahead of its time". It is another Matheson script with handwritten changes throughout. The scripts for both works are reproduced in an oversized 8 1/2 x 11 format.

Matheson expert Matthew Bradley provides insightful commentary to both screenplays. Also included in both editions are illustrations that were used to promote the theatrical release of Duel.

Actor Dennis Weaver also took part in Duel/The Distributor. As most are aware, Dennis Weaver starred in Duel, Steven Spielberg's first major film. Weaver signed only the Lettered edition of the book.
