Shawshank Redemption, The: Special Edition (Dbl DVD)
A prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder spends many years in the Shawshank prison. He is befriended by a convict who knows the ropes and helps him to cope with the frightning realities of prison life.]]>
Fans who made this box-office dud a very popular and cherished film should eat up the 10th anniversary edition. Filmmaker Frank Darabont took a week to record the commentary track so it would be packed with the best stories and information. Of course, some of these stories are repeated in the two and a half hours of extra content. The new retrospective documentary has interviews with all the key talents a decade later. There's also a good amount of info about the ominous setting of the film--a soon-to-be demolished prison in Ohio--that was transformed, and it in turn transformed the members of the cast and crew after months of filming. "The Redeeming Feature" is a refreshingly candid, British-produced TV program examining the phenomenon of the film. Another neat addition is the short parody The Sharktank Redemption, starring Morgan Freeman's son Alfonso as a "prisoner" of a Hollywood talent agency. The feature film looks and sounds great, and the only change is a very slight tinkering to fix a continuity error (pointed out on the commentary). --Doug Thomas

|What is up with these classic movies cases???||
I was bothered at first too, but then again my DVD collection also contains various types of packaging. Just think of your collection as eclectic.

Goodfellas is a better movie. Frank Darabont says in the commentary track that Goodfellas was his basis of inspiration in making Shawshank.

|Name of Movie Morgan Freeman starred in.||
Have been looking at storylines of his past movies, Marie (1985), with Sissy Spacek MIGHT be the one as she is investigating political corruption. Morgan Freeman plays "Charles Traughber". Best I could find. hope it's it.
