This is the very story that made me decide to become a Writer.
I was about 10 when I heard it for the first time.
It was years later that I actually saw the film.
It was fitting then, that the first time I saw it on TV was on the Twilight Zone.
What follows next, before the video posted here, is the Closing Narration from the Twilight Zone, but really, it was the Opening Narration for me.
An occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge—in two forms, as it was dreamed, and as it was lived and died. This is the stuff of fantasy, the thread of imagination…the ingredients of the Twilight Zone
