Forrest Gump, American film, released in 1994, that chronicled 30 years (from the 1950s through the early 1980s) of the life of a intellectually disabled man (played by Tom Hanks) in an unlikely fable that earned critical praise, large audiences, and six Academy Awards, including best picture.
As unforgettable as Tom Hanks’ legendary running scenes in Forrest Gump are, they came close to never being filmed. It’s hard to picture the classic film without Gump’s cross-country journey, but the cost of the scenes was initially too high.

As a child, Forrest had strong legs, but a weak spine, which the family doctor claimed was \\"as crooked as a politician.\\" Because of this, he was forced to wear leg braces which made walking and running difficult, and also discovered he had a sub-standard IQ, which the principal of the local school said excluded him from attending the school. (Forrest's mother made the man reconsider after they slept together.) Forrest's mother told him never to let anyone tell him he was different, saying: \\"S...
Forrest remained close friends with Jenny throughout high school, and one day, when he was targeted by the same bullies, he ran across the high school's football field, disrupting the practice, but also running faster than the players on the team. This caught the attention of the head coach of Alabama Crimson Tide, Paul \\"Bear\\" Bryant, and Forrest received a football scholarship to the University of Alabama where his impressive speed helped the team to win several games. He was then admitted t...

After recovering in the army hospital, Forrest is introduced to Ping-pong, and rather than returning to Vietnam, Forrest is assigned to the Special Services, entertaining wounded veterans with his ping-pong skills. He would later travel to the People's Republic of China during the Ping-Pong Diplomacy period. When he returns in 1971, he was a national hero, \\"famouser than even Captain Kangaroo \\" and was invited by Dick Cavett to appear on The Dick Cavett Show. John Lennon was also a guest on t...
Upon his return, Forrest finds his Greenbow house filled with memorabilia capitalizing on his fame as a ping-pong player in China. At his mother's insistence, Forrest made $25,000 endorsing a brand of \\"Gump-Mao\\" ping-pong paddles, and used most of the money to travel to Bubba's hometown of Bayou La Batre and purchase a boat. When someone pointed out it was bad luck to have a boat without a name, Forrest named the boat after Jenny, which he calls, \\"The most beautiful name in the wide world.\\" U...
Forrest returned home to Greenbow in September 1975 when he learned his mother was dying of cancer. After her death, Forrest stayed at the house and leaves his shrimping industry in the hands of Lieutenant Dan and retired to mowing and cutting grass and lawns, as he apparently enjoys doing it. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Dan participated in a substantial investment into what Forrest says to be \\"some kind of fruit company.\\" In reality, the company was the fledgling Apple Computers, and it is implied...
Forrest's newfound loneliness leads him to take a run \\"for no particular reason.\\" At first, he decides to run to the end of the road, second across town, third across the county, fourth all the way to the Mississippi border. Eventually, he traverses the country several times over a span of three years. Forrest attracts media coverage, and eventually, dozens of followers initiating and inspiring what would become the jogging craze of 1978–79. During the run, he inspires the phrase \\"Shit Happen...
Much of Forrest Gump is told as memory to people waiting for a bus; the remainder is Forrest's present. The present (the \\"present\\" in the film being between November 17, 1980 and December 31, 1980 as seen from the magazine in the black ladies hands and car ad on a bus, since companies will often put ads for new cars a year ahead of time), Forrest tells his latest companion on the bench, an elderly woman, he'd recently received a letter from Jenny asking him to come see her. When told Forrest'...
