This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Andy crosses the border in McNary. It is Fort Hancock.
   Captain Hadley has a heart attack and retires long before Andy escapes. Hadley is still the lead guard and is arrested after Andy escapes because of his abuse of prisoners.
   There are several lead guards during Andy's time at Shawshank. Captain Hadley is the lead guard for the entire duration of Andy's stay.
   The story happens over a thirty year period. The time period is less than that.
   Near beginning of book Red says: "when time draws out like a blade" It is near the end, while Andy is escaping from Shawshank.

Red DOES tell Andy what he did; (quote: "Murder." "Only guilty man in here."

The warden doesn't commit suicide at the end of the book; he continues as warden. In the book, Red is not a Black man; he has red hair (hence the nickname).
