(at around 1h 50 mins) When Eduard Delacroix is being executed, a lightbulb explodes on the mile (the one between the desk and William Wharton's cell). When Paul walks to John Coffey's cell afterwards, the bad bulb is hard to make out, but it is there. See more »
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. See more »
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". See more »
Some of the supporting characters are a little two-dimensional, but 'The Green Mile' is an incredibly effective prison drama with terrific performances and a script that deals with grief in an innovative and emotionally resonant way.
