 Remember this classic from way back in 1994…

“Shawshank Redemption”

Andy Dufresne played by Tim Robbins.  The banker who was convicted of killing his wife and her lover and sent to Shawshank Prison where he was fortunate to meet some very interesting characters. 

Remember “Red” played by Morgan Freeman, or “Brooks” the prison librarian.  How about “Hadley” the mean spirited guard who ultimately turned on the evil Warden Norton.

Great movie with even a greater ending.  Brings back lots of memories…This one will be a classic that I will store in my memory keepsake box and someday share this with my grandchildren or maybe even great grandkids.
