    Tom Hanks "Forrest Gump" iconic bus stop bench from Forrest Gump. (Paramount, 1994)  While waiting at a bus stop, Forrest Gump begins telling his fantastic life story to various strangers sitting near him on a bench.  In the film plot, after retelling each chapter in his life, a different person sits beside him on the bench and listens to his progressing story. The bus stop bench has come to symbolize "Forrest's" loveable and simple character (the movie poster art features a shortened version of the bench).  Measuring 118 in. long x 38 in. tall x 27 in. wide, the vertical pylon supports are crafted of concrete/fiberglass composite.  Stained wooden slats span the pylons to make a fully functional bench.  As is often the case with film props, a number of benches were used on the set of Forrest Gump, one resides at The Savannah History Museum, where the bus stop scenes were filmed.  A brass commemorative brass plaque is riveted on the wood at the center which reads: "'I'm Forrest, Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump.' -Forrest Gump 1994-" The consignor acquired this piece directly from Paramount Pictures in the mid-1990s. Exhibiting some cracking to bench supports. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
