    How many of the guards knew that John was innocent, other than Paul, if any ? They are all visibly distressed when John is dying, so I wonder if Paul told any of the other three that helped take John to heal the warden's wife ?

    I can't remember what happened in the movie, but I do believe that in the book he talked to his especial friends about John's situation. As far as I remember, they knew most of what Paul learned/intuited.

    Ah, makes sense. That doesn't happen in the movie onscreen, at least not the version I watched, but their reactions seemed to imply they knew.

    I think they all knew everything... only the warden was left out of that part.

    Yes in the book Paul has the main guards over for lunch and talks through all he suspects. Like Flake said the warden was spared that burden.

    That story, both on paper and screen... broke (and filled) my heart.

    I loved the movie and the book. John Coffey was just such a wonderful character.

    Those pictures are making me sad :( - this was the BEST and most honest adaption (on par with Shawshank) of SK's books - IMHO! Amazing book, amazing movie. I am slightly biased - pretty big Tom Hanks fan;;D
