Trivia

Many of the extras in the hippie scene were actors from the Maryland Renaissance Festival, since the casting director, Ellen Lewis, realized that would be a good source of performers with long hair.


Quotes

Forrest Gump: Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?


Goofs

When Forrest begins his three-year run, as he passes the barbershop in town, the TV announcer says President Jimmy Carter suffered from heat exhaustion. That happened on September 15, 1979. However, Forrest begins his trip presumably on July 5, 1976, when Carter isn't President yet.
