The Shawshank Redemtion......

Can you give me the original name of the short story the movie was made from?

The name of the author?

Two other movies were made from short stories from the same book. Name them.

No cheating, no Google. I've read this book several times, that's how I know.

Rep points up for grabs.

Okay possibly miles off AP, but is it the small bridge in Stephens Green? If so it's a fluke that I know, spent three hours there last year while waiting for one of the government buildings to complete paperwork for us.
In the film Little Nicky who played the devil?

In the US sitcom the King of Queens what is the full name of the lead male star, and who is the famous son of the father in law who lives in the basement?

I believe it is the blues brothers 2000, which knocked the previous blues brothers film from the record.
A few from me:

1, By what other name is the Liffey Bridge in Dublin known?

2, In what year did the Phoenix Park murders take place?

3, Who was the Mayo-born man who became the " Father of the Argentinian Navy "?
