So, anyone apart from the two main characters. I would have to say Brooks Hatlen (played by James Whitmore). The character is so endearing, I found myself quite fond of him by the time he makes his tragic decision in the guesthouse - it's a heartbreaking scene. The thought of someone being so institutionalised that they miss being in a place like Shawshank is shocking. (I must point out that I already posted this identical topic under 'The Shawshank Redemption' but it got no replies and I just realised that all the activity is going on in 'Shawshank Redemption' - I'm not trying to scam myLot or anything, I would just like to hear people's answers to this question.)

I watched this film last night on UK tv. I found it really interesting, never seen it before. What do you think happens at the end of the film?, i wish they showed a bit more about the outcome, but I guess thats open to imagination. Very good film though

The ending brought most things to a conclusion - they continued the story further than they originally planned so that people wouldn't be left wondering what would happen.

Brookes is too boring. I prefer the guy that brookes almost kills. He adds comedy to the film.
