Praise for Stephen King Goes to the Movies: Featuring Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption

  • Storytelling - the ability to make the listener or the reader need to know, demand to know, what happens next is a gift . . . Stephen King has this gift in spades - The Times on CELL

  • To tell the truth, I just don't know what it is about that film that resonates with so many people. But everywhere I go people who have seen it react to it fondly. And I get the same kind of dialogue about it being one of, if not the, favourite movie. - Morgan Freeman, on The Shawshank Redemption

  • There isn't a day when I'm not approached about that film, approached by people who are so . . . thankful, who say how important that film was to them, and how many times they've seen it: twenty, thirty, forty times . . . - Tim Robbins on The Shawshank Redemption
