Filmed in Germany, Duel in the Forest is set in the 18th century. Feudal lords regularly oppress the German peasantry, taxing them into starvation. From out of the hills rides a band of highway robbers, acting as Teutonic Robin Hoods, to steal from the haves for the benefit of the have-nots. Duel in the Forest is so obscure that it virtually never appears in the official credits of its stars Curt Jurgens and Maria Schell. The film did not receive an American release until it was sold to television in the early 1960s.
