"Run, Forrest, Run!"

Tom Hanks expanded Savannah's map of characters with Forrest Gump. After the success of the film, Atlanta-born John Sandifer gave the role of Forrest a shot in Savannah. It was immediately a hit with tourists, and John even did a mini series in collaboration with South magazine and graced our October/November 2010 cover.
