That's the actual title of Steven King's short story which was turned into one of my favorite movies of all time. I guess it must be some prisoners' favorite films as well, as these guys used it as a get-out-of-jail manual, and dug themselves out of prison using the "pin-up picture to cover the hole" trick. As for the title, the hole in the cell in Shawshank was first covered by a picture of Rita Hayworth. I think this method was featured in "Escape from Alcatraz" as well (and the "put a dummy under the covers for the bed-check"), but I'm not positive.

Either way, alert the police in Zihuatanejo. ben
