Shawshank Redemption, The - Is It Still 1949?
In the scene when Andy first comes to Shawshank, Red said that it was 1949. After a while, the Sisters start to beat Andy up, and Red said that he thought the first 2 years were the hardest for Andy. They show a short shot of Andy walking around in the snow, commonly meaning (especially in Maine) that it was wintertime. Later on when Red first talks about the resurfacing project for the plate factory roof, he said that it was spring 1949.

"I'm the bullgod" is right. Red said that Andy came to him and asked for the Rita Hayworth poster in 1949, not that he got there in 1949.

Yeah.. They are both right. It, as a matter of fact, stated that he came in Early 1947 (which we can safely assume is before the month of May)which would make it correct to say the roofing started in May of '49, two years later.

Actually when a movie is taken from a book alot of jumping around occurs so that it makes sense when viewed as a movie, so to maintain the integrity of the book they leave the stories as much as the books author intended.
