Quotes

Dean Stanton: Well? What about Mrs. Moores? Was it like the mouse? Was it a... you know, a miracle?
Paul Edgecomb: Yes. Yes, it was. Damn...


Goofs

Popular 40s/50s vocalist Eddy Howard is featured on three soundtrack songs, all recorded 4 October 1940 (five years after the movie's setting), with a small jazz band which featured pianist Teddy Wilson.


Crazy Credits

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 unusual and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont.


Alternate Versions

The documentary "Walking the Mile" (which is included on the DVD) features the making of a scene, where Edgecomb and his wife are in a church. That scene is not in the final film. The church is probably the one mentioned by Hanks character when he says to Melinda that "we missed you in church".
