The Green Mile (1999) - On death row in a Southern prison, gentle giant John Coffey possesses the mysterious power to heal people's ailments. When the cell block's head guard recognizes Coffey's miraculous gift, he tries desperately to help stave off the man's execution.
"They usually call death row the Last Mile, but we called ours the Green Mile, because the floor was the color of faded limes. We had the electric chair then. Old Sparky, we called it. I've lived a lot of years, Ellie, but 1935 takes the prize. That was the year I had the worst urinary infection of my life. That was also the year of John Coffey and the two dead girls."
