"Forrest Gump is one of my favorite contemporary movies. As you all know, I am a big fan of old movies, not so much of newer films. But this movie, clearly, reminds me of a great classic movie. Robert Zemeckis is one of the finest directors today and Tom Hanks, one of the finest actors of today create a truly amazing film. When I had the chance to buy a costume for my museum from this great movie, I jumped at the opportunity. This custom was purchased from a Christie's auction many years ago. Forrest Gump is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year." -Debbie Reynolds
