Storyline

During the American Civil War, Union troops are about to hang a man, a Southerner, from the Owl Creek bridge. As he goes over the side with the noose around his neck the rope breaks and he manages to unbind his hands and feet. As he swims downstream, he has images of home and his lovely wife. He also manages to evade the troops who are trying to stop him. Just as he reaches his destination however, his true circumstances are revealed. Written by garykmcd

16 July 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Stealing my sons user name I have to make a comment that I have had in my mind since I saw this magnificent masterpiece many years ago. I had the privilege of talking to the makers of this artistic work some years ago and today I can only but applaud the finesse. As a former Production executive I feel I am in a position to comment with a degree of authority. The art of motion picture making has been slowly but surely become a lost art. I am well aware of contemporary films having value, not everyone resorts to cgi ( OK in its place but think about Ray Harryhausen film art in practice ) and I am pleased that Donnie Darko referenced this film, a film that will be seen - as it is today as, dare I use an overused superlative, as being a classic Ted Wallis and son.
