The Film: The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The Film Thief: Clancy Brown (Captain Hadley)
Heist Moment: Sure, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) and "Red" Redding are the focus of the movie.
And Andy has his big breakout moment.
But from the moment he stalks on screen and starts hollering at the prisoners, Clancy Brown's Hadley drags your attention away every minute he appears.
He's a brutal, uncompromising bastard and hates his charges with a vicious fury.
Drunk on power, he's eventually brought down, but not before beating at least one man to death.
Okay, so maybe he didn't strictly steal the whole movie - when the ending kicks in he's the last thing on our minds - but he's still a major scene pincher...
Memorable Line: “If I hear so much as a mouse fart in here the rest of the night I swear by God and sonny Jesus you will all visit the infirmary. Every last motherf****r in here.”
Tea-Leaf Trivia: Brown was contacted by several real prison officers offering help with his portrayal.
But he turned them down and concentrated on making Hadley a purely evil git. It worked...
