Civil war deserter hanged

I saw this short in 1976. The title is “Incident at…” or similar, I think. The plot involves a civil war deserter. He is captured and summarily hung. But the noose breaks, the deserter escapes down a creek bed. The action is seen from his POV, until he is snapped at the end of the fall and is hanged. It was all a dream and he’s killed.

  1. The story is “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” It’s been adapted several times. You may be thinking of the episode of “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” There was also a French feature film.
