Striking Similarity: Stephen King and 237

There's a strange reccuring number in a few Stephen King cinematic adaptations. The number 237.

The scary-ass room in The Shining (1980) in number 237.

In Stand By Me (1986) when the boys are collecting their money, the total amount they gather is $2.37.

In The Shawshank Redemption (1994), Red's cell number is 237.

In The Green Mile (1999) John Coffey's prisoner number is 237, and in Dreamcatcher (2003) the lisence plate on the spaceship is UFO237. OK I made up the last two, but the others are for real.

I chuckled at the last one. I was all like, stop lying, the spaceship didn't have a license plate, silly girls.
