Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia and is the county seat of Chatham County. The city has served as film location form many film scenes. Savannah is probably best known movie for the Tom Hanks film Forrest Gump. In the beginning of the film, a feather floats high above the grand southern trees and sweeps down and eventually lands at the base of a park bench.

Hanks sits on the park bench located in Chippewa Square for 80% of the film, telling his life story to anyone who will listen. Film Director John Mulholland and Producer Richard Zampella visited Savannah in February 2016 while traveling to Miami, Florida to conduct interviews for the Elmore Leonard Documentary: The Dickens of Detroit.
