Steven Speilberg directed this brilliant hour of television. Clu Gulager (in his best performance) plays a professional golfer who is an old friend of Dr. Whitman. Gulager is dying of cancer. Dr. Whitman tries to help Gulager deal with his emotions in the last days of his life. Joan Darling is Gulager's scared wife who feels she isn't pretty enough for him. There is no big life affirming ending but the drama is quietly devastating. Spielberg says on the new "Duel" dvd that up to this point he had been frustrated in his directing efforts at Universal. Producer Jerrold Freedman asked him to do two episodes of "The Psychiatrist" with no restrictions. Freedman told Spielberg to make avant guard art films if you want. Spielberg rewarded Freedman's faith with two superb television episodes that were almost in fact avant guard art films. All these years later, it still seem cruelly unfair that Spielberg was not nominated for an Emmy for "Par for the Course".moreless
