Shawshank Redemption



"The Shawshank Redemption" is one of my favorite films and was based on Stephen King's short story, "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" from his short story collection "Different Seasons."

Interesting fact: Stephen King sold the rights for one dollar!

  1. Luana - I love the movie - and I'm not surprised that this was one of Stephen King's "Dollar Babies." Look that up - you'll love it. However, that link apparently goes to a KGWN headline page - so when I hit the link I found out a wildfire is spreading out west; but got no cool Shawshank stories.

    1. Thanks for the heads up about the link, Craig. As for the movie selling for a dollar, you just never know if a film is going to be a work of art. It all depends on how well it's executed. There have been wonderful King adaptions that were duds but could have been amazing.
