THE GREEN MILE (1999) **** Starring: Tom Hanks, David Morse, Michael Clarke Duncan, Bonnie Hunt, James Cromwell, ...
At the beginning of the movie, when the elderly Paul Edgecomb is walking to get breakfast after waking from his bad dream, he is walking on a tiled floor that is very green, as if it is his own Green Mile.
What did you just do to me?
John Coffey: I helped it. Didn't I help it? I just took it back, is all. Awful tired now, boss. Dog tired.
When Paul Edgecomb approaches John Coffey's cell after getting kicked in the groin, John Coffey asks him to come closer to the bars. When Eduard Delacroix warns Paul that he's not supposed to do that, Paul replies, "Mind your business, Del." But if you watch Tom Hanks' lips, he actually says "Mind your own business, Del."
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown, followed by the opening scene for place of film. Although it is now commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1999 it was somewhat rather unusually and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont.
