  Original Published: 9/2/2013Hundreds of people from all around the country came to Mansfield over the weekend to mark the 20th anniversary of the prison film The Shawshank Redemption. A large part of the movie was shot at the Ohio State Reformatory, which was the site of a special reunion and tours. "It's a fabulous tour. I'm glad I we were able to get here and do it. Some of my favorite spots in the tour is the staircase where Tim Robbins and the Warden were walking down," Shawshank Redemption fan Matt Sarich said. Miss Ohio 2013 Heather Wells also participated in the celebration. "I can't believe it's been 20 years. People are still capitivated by the movies. It has a great story line and it puts Mansfield on the map nationally," Wells said. Several actors and extras from the film greeted the large crowd of fans who toured the prison to learn more about the movie. One of the highlights of the reunion was a special visit from Robert Patrick "Bob" Gunton Jr., who played the Warden Samuel Norton in the movie. Gunton signed autographs and took pictures with all those in attendance.
