** Andy's wife and her lover were shot four times each. The prosecutor even uses this to paint Andy as a cold-blooded murderer; a revolver only holds six bullets, so in order to fire eight times the murderer would have had to stand there and reload.

** In the book, Stephen King is careful to draw a distinction between heterosexuals who just '[[SitchSexuality come to an arrangement]]', actual homosexuals and the 'sisters', who are just depraved rapists.

* TheOldConvict: Red, to an extent, but more certainly Brooks, an elderly man who finds he is unable to adjust to life outside prison walls. Brooks was in prison for so long, since 1910, that when he's released in the '50s, it's a world he can't recognize. For one thing Brooks remarks that when he went in, he'd only seen one car, when he was a boy.

Added DiffLines:

* AsTheGoodBookSays: Andy and Warden Norton trade Bible quotes during their first direct conversation with each other.
-->'''Norton''': I'm pleased to see you reading [[Literature/TheBible this]]. Any favorite passages?
-->'''Andy''': "Watch ye therefore, for [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything ye know not when the master of the house cometh]]."
-->'''Norton''': [[Literature/TheFourGospels Luke, chapter 13, verse 35]]. [[IResembleThatRemark I've always liked that one]]. But I prefer, "[[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} I am the light of the world]]. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
-->'''Andy''': John, chapter 8, verse 12.


Added DiffLines:

* StealthPun: Andy hides his the rock hammer in his Bible, specifically in the Literature/BookOfExodus, which tells of the Israelitesí deliverance from slavery.

Added DiffLines:

* TheBully: Captain Hadley clearly loves the power and authority his position gives him and takes every opportunity he can to remind the inmates that he can do anything he wants. Tellingly, after inheriting $35,000 from his brother (roughly equal to $300,000 today) the thought of quitting his position never occurs to him.

Added DiffLines:

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: After Andy cuts a deal with Hadley (that almost gets him thrown off the roof), he asks as payment that he buys the convicts beer when they're done tarring the roof. Heywood offers a cold one to Andy, and cracks up laughing when Andy tells him he quit drinking.


Added DiffLines:

** Andy goes out and gets drunk at the beginning of the film when his wife demands a divorce. When he arranges for the convicts to get beer later in the film (something that almost gets him thrown off the roof for his trouble), he declines a bottle for himself, saying he gave up drinking. [[ActuallyPrettyFunny Even Heywood finds it rather funny]].
