green mile

Really? All I can see is the name of a prison film. SemperBlotto 08:09, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

The book on which the film was based started coming out in 1996, so I tried searching for books from before then. The first 250 (sic) hits on that search did not yield any relevant results whose snippets were visible on the search-result page, nor, indeed, any obviously non-SoP results at all. So if this exists, I guess it's only in recent use, based on the book and film, but this search yields AFAICT no relevant results among the first 100.​—msh210 16:14, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
"mile" or possibly "last mile" would be a more general version; from what I remember of the film, their death row just happened to have a green floor. Interplanet Janet 12:30, 8 February 2010 (UTC)
In the Batman game, the green mile (in lower case) refers to the area of the penitentiary for prisoners waiting to be executed. I agree that this is a recent development. It will probably see more frequent use in the near future. JamesjiaoT C 09:45, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
