Finally tonight, 25 years ago tomorrow, a movie opened in theaters and bombed. But since then, it's become one of the most popular movies of all time, so popular the prison where it was filmed is a tourist attraction. Our Sam Brock now on "Shawshank's Redemption."

Get busying living, or get busy dying.

The lines are now the stuff of a legend and the pure power of "Shawshank's Redemption" enduring, but the rise to stardom for a film shot inside an old prison in Mansfield, Ohio, was far from smooth.

Director Frank Darabont recalls why.

We did not set the box office on fire. It was a hard argument to make, "Come see this prison movie. It's got some like really good actors in it".

Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things.

Drink up while it's cold, ladies.

Over time, the movie's inspiring story line and seven Oscar nominations turned it into a classic.

How many of you have seen "The Shawshank's Redemption"?

Shawshank's impacts so far-reaching, the prison where it was shot now transformed into a museum, turning this Rust Belt town into a tourist attraction, and inspiring legions of fans to make the pilgrimage prepped with their favorite lines...

You're wasting my time, Sonny, let me just go back.

"How can you be so obtuse?" That was filmed right here.

...and lasting impressions.

Every time it comes on, I watch it.

It is a movie about hope. That is something fundamental. That is important to people.

That hope hangs like a canopy over the movie's arc, sometimes soaring through the wonder of Mozart at a turning point for Tim Robbins' character, Andy Dufrane.

How much of that is a metaphor for what this movie is about?

A great songwriter can make you cry in two and a half minutes. It takes me two and a half hours to try to get your tears. To me, the music is just like an arrow right to the heart.

"Shawshank's Redemption" ultimately crescendos with Andy's great escape, an uplifting message of perseverance that some viewers even credit with saving their life.

That this has become one of those things people can turn to in times of trouble and gain comfort from it, that's the payoff for the whole career.

A complete transformation, from darkness into light. Sam Brock, NBC News.

I'd show that to my kids.
