This Scene Wasn’t Edited, Look Closer at the Shawshank Redemption Blooper

Did you realize that the current classic The Shawshank Redemption is based on a Stephen King novella? Even more astonishing, King almost handed away the story’s rights for just $1,000!

The movie also has some interesting behind-the-scenes stories. For example, the iconic poster featuring Raquel Welch was not in the original story! In the novella, the poster was of Rita Hayworth, but the filmmakers worried viewers would mistake the movie for a biography.

Another fascinating fact is that Morgan Freeman had never done voiceovers before! The moment where Andy and Red throw a baseball back and forth took nine hours to film!

Next time you watch The Shawshank Redemption, you can enjoy these little-known facts along with the amazing story.
