Director: Kenneth Branagh.
Stars: John Gielgud, Richard Briers.
1993 Academy Awards – Nominated for an Oscar for Best Short Film, Live Action.
Note: here’s another rare Oscar nominated short film, unfortunately this copy (the only one I’ve found) has some image stability issues, lots of jumping from minute 5 to ~ 13 but after that it stabilizes, there’s also Italian subtitles embedded on it, guessing the source is an Italian VHS, it’s still very watchable though and this copy is also of better quality than the one you can find on Youtube split in 2 parts, the second part especially is really bad, just unwatchable.
