* Director Frank Darabont had to change the title from ''Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption'' to just ''The Shawshank Redemption'' because several actresses sent in their resumes in for consideration thinking it was a Rita Hayworth movie. Accorting to Darabont, a supermodel's agent called him and said that it was the best script he'd ever read and his client would be perfect for the part of "Rita Hayworth"!

** This is referenced in the film when Andy asks him why he's called Red. The reply "maybe because I'm Irish" is a reference to the Red character in the original novel, who was both red headed and Irish.

*** A sequence where the convicts find Jake (Brooks's pet crow) dead in a field sometime after Brooks has left the prison, and the convicts give Jake a funeral and burial. This deletion ends up providing a subtle thematic shift; as scripted, both Brooks and Jake represent the dangers of institutionalization, but as depicted on screen, Jake ends up foreshadowing Andy's successful escape in the climax of the film.

*** After Andy's escape, an unfortunate guard is sent into his tunnel to see where it leads, and when he sees the sewage pipe broken into and smells the overwhelming odor of shit, he vomits -- ''loudly''. Red hears this happen from his own cell and cracks up laughing.

* VindicatedByCable: Back in 1994, it earned just over $28 million at the US box office; it has since enjoyed a remarkable life on cable television and home video. Ted Turner loved this movie so much, he made sure it was playing on at least one of his cable networks every weekend for about a decade (Helped by the fact that he had sold the rights to the movie cheaply to his own stations so playing it was cheap), which helped the film earn back its budget and give it the mainstream recognition it never received while in theaters. You can still find it on {{TBS}} or a similar channel, even 15 years later.

* RealLifeRelative: The mugshots of a young-looking Red that are attached to his parole papers are actually pictures of Morgan Freeman's younger son, Alfonso Freeman. Alfonso also cameos as the con who shouts "Fresh fish! Fresh fish today! We're reeling 'em in!"

!!Other * Unusually the voiceover narration was recorded before filming began and was then played on set to dictate the rhythm of each scene. The guide track was recorded in an Iowa recording studio by Morgan Freeman in only 40 minutes. Unfortunately, there was a minor hiss to the track which sound engineers in Los Angeles were unable to eradicate. Consequently it had to be re-recorded in a proper studio; this time it took 3 weeks.
