One of the Missing 1968 12

26 mins United Kingdom Director. Tony Scott

A soldier, out on reconnaissance in the American Civil War, finds himself trapped - buried alive and alone under the rubble of a fallen wall - deep in enemy territory. Unable to move, he is overcome by a mad terror as he hallucinates and awaits his almost certain death. This potent short, based on a Gothic tale by Ambrose Bierce, marked the directorial debut of True Romance director Tony Scott.
