Overnight Sensation is a 1984 short film directed by Jon Bloom, based loosely on W. Somerset Maugham's short story "The Colonel's Lady." After housewife Eve Peregrine writes a sudden hit novel, her husband George, a successful fashion photographer, finds it difficult to deal with the attention being showered on her. His difficulty in getting through the book increases when he begins to suspect that the steamy affair in its plot is drawn from her real life. The film was nominated for an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film.
