Stephen King provides commentary and introductions for 5 of his favorite short stories that have been turned into films: The Shawshank Redemption (based on the novella "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption") was nominated for seven Academy Awards. 1408 starred John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson and was a huge success in 2007. Children of the Corn was adapted into the film of the same name. The Mangler was inspired by King's loathing for laundry machines from his own experience working in a laundromat, and Hearts in Atlantis (based on "Low Men in Yellow Coats") starred Anthony Hopkins and gained critical acclaim for the wonderful performance of Anton Yelchin.
