Jenny Seagrove in A Shocking Accident

Remember when Jenny Seagrove was involved with an Oscar-winning project? Well, in 1982 she and Rupert Everett co-starred in a short film called A Shocking Accident, based on a story by Graham Greene. It is an often overlooked part of Jenny Seagrove's career and, even though it won an Oscar (and was apparently nominated for a BAFTA award) and is supposedly available on VHS and DVD, I'm not sure how widely seen A Shocking Accident is (I haven't had the pleasure of viewing it...yet).

Though the newspaper article below claims to explain how A Shocking Accident won an Oscar for best live action short film, I didn't really get a satisfactory answer after reading it. It's an interesting article nonetheless and gives some nice background information on the project.
