Wow - an Ambrose Bierce story in high school! I doubt that my English teacher was even allowed to consider one (LOL). Oh yeah - different countries, different ways.

I read this as a short story in high school English class. It's also an episode of "The Twilight Zone."

Thank you for sharing the link, H50. "An Occurence at Owl Creek" reminds me of a similar titled short story by Ambrose Bierce. Is it based on that?

Right, you both are, Steve's Girl and Katie.

Although Jack never accepted an Academy Award in his own right, at the 1964 awards, he accepted for Paul deRoubaix and Marcel Ichac, producers of An Occurrence at Owl Creek. Jack’s acceptance speech was simple and to the point, explaining that Messrs. deRoubaix and Ichac were in Paris and could not attend the ceremony, but they were honored to have won the award.
