Notes

Color by DuArt and Technicolor; DeLuxe prints, in Panavision. The famous, oft-quoted line said by Forrest Gump in the film: "Life is like a box of chocolates," is a total reworking of the original line in the novel which reads: "Let me say this: bein' an idiot is no box of chocolates." "To make Sinise appear to be a double amputee, the filmmakers relied on a combination of computer artistry, a trick wheelchair that hid Sinise's legs from the knees down and a limber actor... Sinise did suffer a minor leg injury while making 'Gump,' ironically during a scene in which Forrest (Tom Hanks) carries him out of the Vietnam jungle. 'My inner thigh kept bouncing on his shoulder. It was like taking a jackhammer to it,' says Sinise. 'I developed a huge contusion and couldn't bend my leg to get into the wheelchair.'" -- USA TODAY, July 7, 1994 Following music used in the film: "Lovesick Blues" by Cliff Friend and Irving Mills, performed by Hank Williams "Hound Dog" by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller "Rebel Rouser" by Duane Eddy and Lee Hazlewood, performed by Duane Eddy "(I Don't Know Why) But I Do" by Paul Gayten and Robert Guidry, performed by Clarence "Frogman" Henry "Walk Right In" by H.
