The guards are mixing a cup of RC Cola with some drug to knock Wild Bill out so they can take Coffey to the Warden's wife. Those bottles of Royal Crown Cola were not used in 1934 or 5, the time the movie takes place in, but were 1950s bottles. The earliest painted RC pop bottles has pyramids and a copyright date of 1936 on the label, and prior to that were likely plain, embossed glass bottles. See more »
The Green Mile is a masterwork. This is film as art, at it's very best. The depth of the cast is extraordinary, with all of the players delivering excellent performances. There is a clear sense here that all involved in the production knew that this was something special, and gave it their all. See this film if you truly enjoy actors giving everything to their craft. Watch for the countless subtleties of expression, and the great power that the cast creates with silence. This is evident in the opening sequence and remains throughout. Above all, Michael Duncan as John Coffey is exceptional. He brings gripping emotion to a unique, fascinating character.
The Green Mile should bring you joy, laughter, and if you are like most in the theater this night, tears.
