The Shawshank Redemption

"Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free."

Framed in the 1940s for the double murder of his wife and her lover, upstanding banker Andy Dufresne begins a new life at the Shawshank prison, where he puts his accounting skills to work for an amoral warden. During his long stretch in prison, Dufresne comes to be admired by the other inmates -- including an older prisoner named Red -- for his integrity and unquenchable sense of hope.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The town of Mansfield held all day open auditions for extras. So much interest was shown that they accepted no more people after 3pm.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Andy's 1955 library letter carries a 1954-series 3-cent stamp, which is correct; but the letter beneath his has a 1923 series, which hadn't been issued since 1938, and the other two have just two cents in postage.
  • Director Frank Darabont decided not to have the deleted scenes on the DVD release of the film because he's embarrassed of them and doesn't want them to be able to be seen publicly
  • The rock wall where Red's "treasure" is buried was built specifically for the film and is still standing today. It was built by hand by the art department and months beforehand too. This allowed for the alfalfa grass to grow to make it look weathered.
