What's not to like about it?
How about, why in the hell would Andy go to the warden with Tommy's story about Blatch? He knows the warden is corrupt and that they have killed people. The guards beat Boggs to a pulp because of Andy. What did he think the warden was going to say? "Gee Andy, that's great, I'll call the governor and see if we can get you a new trial?"
The ACLU existed during the time frame of this movie. He had a defense lawyer at some point. Tell them. Even if the warden is spying and overheard, some one on the outside would know.
Its a good movie and I like it, but its not an all time great, it doesn't crank my 90's top 20.
