More than 50 vehicles signed up

for the “Escape 2016 - Shelby to Shaw-

shank” cruise through the local coun-

tryside on Thursday. It began with a

parade lap of Mid-Ohio and continued

through Shelby, Ohio, ending up at the

Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield.

The prison was used to film the movie,

“The Shawshank Redemption,” which

was based on a Stephen King novella,

set in 1947 in Maine.

When the movie was released in

1994 it was regarded as something of

a box office disappointment, even

though it was nominated for seven

academy awards (without winning

anything) and received outstanding

reviews. It starred Morgan Freeman

and Tim Robbins. The film became

popular after being broadcast on cable

television, where it seems like it runs

about once a week. It has since re-

ceived numerous awards.
