How does Stephen King create meaning in "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption"?
I can only related to the Shawshank Redemption movie as I have never seen "Rita Hayworth"
"meaning" ... of freedom:
- a "prisoner" (Andy Dufresne played by Tim Robbins) doesn't necessarily have to "feel" like a prisoner as one's mind is always "free" to think, hear music, feel or remember whatever they want. "Whatever is in your head can never be taken away".
"meaning" ... of life:
- one makes the best of whatever situation you are in. Using your head/mind to change a situation: instead of being stuck in the laundry, Andy was able to be moved (promoted) to the Warden's office to do his books and eventually all the income tax forms for many guards, within Shawshank and other institutions.
"meaning" ... of respect for oneself:
1) Even though Andy was a "prisoner" of the system, he had "respect" and a "status" from all the other guards, seeing he was doing all their income taxes for them!
2) The "respect" from all the other inmates came from when Andy was able to arrange for 3 beers per prisoner to enjoy while they were tarring a roof on an extremely hot day in return for some financial advice for one of the guards on duty that day.
"meaning" ... of hope:
- Before Red, played by Morgan Freeman (Andy's best friend in prison) finally got parolled, he was sent a postcard (unsigned but known to be from Andy), who had escaped successfully which showed Fort Hancock was probably the spot he crossed over the border at. The postcard was a reminder to Red, there was an opportunity if whenever he got out to join Andy in a better life. Andy got his friend "Red" to finally realize in the end when he finally got parolled that "hope" really did exist. Red had the opportunity to improve himself in the outside world by taking that further "step" to leave the designated area of his work and residence to go on that journey to Mexico, that Andy and he were discussing over the many years they were "inside" together. This would be the "hope" for a better life than the one he was presently in.
That's all I can think of at present. Hopefully this helps you out.
where was Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption published?
As you know originally it was part of the book by Stephen King "Different Seasons" and it included 3 other short stories, in addition to the above one you listed. I found one version available which gives the following information:
ISBN:0451167538ISBN13:9780451167538 EDITION:Edition Type: Reprint BINDING:PUBLISHER:Penguin Group (Canada) (11/30/-0001) PAGES:508
Also, I know originally the book was published in 1982. Obviously the above is a later edition.
I want to dress up like Rita Hayworth for a costume party, what kind of things do I need?
Here are some pictures.
Unless you are built like her your going to have a hard time distinguishing yourself from any other actress of the age with simply dressing.
you might want to research her life history.
You can go to the hair salon and they can give u a perm but now full on perm. They can give you beach curls. My friend got them and they looked so cute. so yeah try doing that.
If you already have curly hair try getting a pruduct that boosts curls. and try a leave in conditioner for after the shower
well the big thing is that Rita Hayworth kept her look pretty natural. Make sure your eyebrows are well trimmed with an arch as much as your brow bone allows. Use an eyeshadow that is shimmery and close to your skin color. Line your lashes with a gel eyeliner or eyeliner pencil preferably black. Load on some mascara to make full, thick lashes. I recommend the Colossal Volum' by Maybelline Her trademark was a red lip. Make sure to use a conditioning balm on your lips first then add on the red lipstick. For the hair hot rollers would be great for this or if you don't have it try a curling iron with at least a 1.5 inch barrel depending on your hair length. There is a link below to help you with the makeup and hair. Hope this helps. :)
In the film 'The Shawshank Redemption' why did Andy wait two years to ask Red for the poster of 'Rita Hayworth?
He originally got the rock hammer to make the pieces for a chess game out of rocks. Then one day he was etching letters on the wall when a chunk of it fell off. He had studied how rocks were formed and he realized that he could tunnel through the wall, so he asked Red for the poster to cover up the hole he was about to create.
It hasn't yet been released in ebook form (so any copies out there are private scans that have been made public w/o consent from the copyright holders).
The story, "Rita Hayworth & the Shawshank Redemption" is from the book Different Seasons. Booksonboard.com has a list of over 50 ebooks/audiobooks by Stephen King, but that's not one of them. But they're always adding new books, so maybe it'll become available soon.
Twiggy came along and made the stick figure popular.
Women like Rita Hayworth, Marilyn Monroe etc. were the real beauties, with their hour glass figures.
My husband has always said he like to hug me and feel there was a little something to hold.
