In the scene where Andy Dufrense (Tim Robbins) first comes to Shawshank, and the soon-to-be-inmates are walking along all chained and stuff, the black man who is yelling to them and pretending to reel in a fish is in real life Morgan Freeman's son, Alfonso.

this is a multi-faceted egg: in shawshank, red's cell number was 237. in the shining, the room with the zombie lady was 237. in stand by me, when the kid's pool their money together to get food, they come up with $2.37. if anybody knows why this is, barring the obvious stephen king connection...for the love of god let me know.

According to the International Movie Data Base (or that was in fact Freeman's son, not his brother who made the brief cameo. This is the same son who is seen on "Red's" parole pictures.

In the book, the room number was 217. I have heard that Kubrick changed it to 237, a room number that does not exist, as the management of the Timberline Lodge was afraid that, after the movie was released, nobody would want to ever stay in that room again. Both "Stand By Me", based on the short story 'The Body', and "The Shawshank Redemption", based on the short story 'Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption' were written after Kubrick's screenplay adaptation. Perhaps Steven King was simply making a point. Or an egg...
