	I notice similarities.  Joe & Andy both chip a hole through
the walls of their cells with rock hammers; Andy covers his with pinup
posters of famously-beautiful women; Joe puts a frame around his hole,
calls it art, titles it 'Escape from paradise'.
	Both have Black friends, with whom they eventually end up.
	Both go to Mexico; both work on old boats.
	Stephen King published 'Rita Hayworth and Shawshank
Redemption' in 1982; the movie 'Shawshank Redemption' was made in
1994; Joe released 'Escape from paradise' in 1996.
	Joe uses music from Thomas Newman's score of the movie in many
of his other shows, including the cut 'Rock hammer'.

	After Jones kills Farrington he takes his master key, but he
escapes with Joe through the sewer.
