Think you remember all the details of "The Shawshank Redemption?" Take this quiz to find out.

Reigning supreme as one of the greatest movies of all time, "The Shawshank Redemption" was the film adaptation of Stephen King's 1982 work, "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption." Those who watched the movie because they loved the book will agree that this is one of the better adaptations of a Stephen King book (we can't say the same thing for all movies based on King's work). If you're wondering how Rita Hayworth fits into the story, go back and watch the movie (and maybe read the book), because you're not ready to take this quiz.

The film stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman as Andy Dufresne and Ellis Redding (Red), respectively, and unwinds a story about the two that is intricate, intimate, and captivating. But, since this is not a review, we'll try to keep our personal feelings to ourselves.

Although many critics continue to hail the movie as a must watch, it did not fare well at the box office, making only twice the $25 million it cost to make, but it's still a popular offering on cable television.
