Episode 76 - The Shawshank Redemption

May 10, 2022

On this week’s episode, Jeff and Amy Jo are tackling one of their favorite films: The Shawshank Redemption! Who did Rob Reiner want for the leads when he considered directing? Which double-Oscar winner had to turn down Andy due to scheduling conflicts? And what’s the deal with putting Andy’s wife and the golf pro on the back of the VHS box? Also – we go gaga over those delicious Morgan Freeman Narration Nuggets and Jeff continues his vendetta against Forrest Gump!

The Shawshank Redemption stars Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton, William Sadler, Clancy Brown, Gil Bellows, Mark Rolston, and James Whitmore as Brooks; directed by Frank Darabont
