I guess everyone was outside today enjoying the nice weather instead of voting in this thread to crown the greatest movie of all-time!

I'm more than a little shocked by Shawshank's flaccid showing thus far.

Shawshank's a lovable movie that is almost perfectly executed. But ultimately it is short story turned into cinema.

With slight reactions, I offer verbatim one of two handwritten notes contained in my copy of Stephen King's "Different Seasons":

Wednesday, 10:30 a.m.

[ ], Pa.

Dear [ ],

I'm enclosing the gift of a Stephen King book which contains a 95 page story I'd very much like you to read. The story, "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption" is set in prison from the viewpoint of a long-time convict. In it, Stephen King displays some extraordinary insight about the effect of long incarceration on the psyche of a prisoner.

I believe it will give you a different view and more understanding about what's going on for me. It's not long and Stephen King is a marvelous storyteller, so I think you'll enjoy it.

Sincerely,
[ ]

I can't wait to read the personal forward on your copy of Mario Puzo's book!

Damn it!!! Guess I should stop by here more often! Apparently we had 83 original entries and at least a couple of my faves of all time did not even make the list without my votes.
