Trivia

This documentary is featured on the 2-disc DVD for Forrest Gump (1994). (See also alternate versions.) See more »

Goofs

Producer Wendy Finerman tells us that the first time she read the novel 'Forrest Gump' was in 1985 but Winston Groom would only publish the book in 1986. See more »

Alternate Versions

The special edition laserdisc features a 37-minute version of this documentary, compared to the 30-minute one found on the DVD (which was apparently shortened for a broadcast on Showtime). The omitted sections include the entirety of chapters 8 and 9 (about Lt. Dan's leg removal and the atmosphere at the Washington/rally scenes, total 6:06), additional footage of Michael Humphreys (young Forrest) at the end of chapter 4 (1:14), and for some reason 3 seconds of a church establishing shot in chapter 2. (Note that the DVD version, for some reason, does not actually have chapter stops; these refer to the laserdisc, but each new heading on screen is a new chapter.) See more »
