Movie Review: ***^An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge

This is a movie based on the Civil War short story of Ambrose Bierce of the same name.  A Southern saboteur is to be executed for attempted to damage railway tracks.  He is to be hung off a bridge.  The rope is placed around his neck, and he is slid off a board; but the rope doesn't catch.  He ends up in the water, where he manages to untie his bonds before he drowns.  He is then on the road, with the Union firing at him, rifles and canons, but they are unable to kill him.  He is headed to see his wife.
