Shawshank Redemption, The - Marlboro Miles
Watch the scene just before Tommy is shot and killed. The Warden offers him a cigarette, a Marlboro. Look on the side of the pack. At first I thought this may have been a surgeon generals warning which may or may not have been around in the late 1960's. However, a closer look revealed that there are actually Marlboro Miles on the side of the pack. Being a non-smoker I had to check, but indeed, Marboro Miles is an ad campaign conceived a couple of years ago and did not exist in the 1960's.

The Surgeon General's first warning was printed on cigarette packs in the U.S. in 1966. Good catch on the Marlboro Miles.

Surgeon General warnings were developed recently as well, within the last ten years!
