Yes, we have a winner. Besides playing Chester, Mr. Weaver was also in Steven Spielberg's first film 'Duel'. Made in 1971, at the time it was considered a great horror film, but now it would just be a typical day for the average driver on today's highways. Actually it probably is much worse these days as Mr. W has only one truck trying to mow him down.
