We had to duplicate Washington in 1865 and we certainly couldn’t afford to build it. We scouted all up and down the eastern seaboard and found Savannah to be the best option. It has that old center part of town that has been pretty well retained and preserved. The buildings look the way they did in the 1800s. So we could use the buildings–we just had to cover all the streets with dirt and mulch. Everything was muddy, because there were carriages and horses and no pavement. Remember, Washington didn’t look anything like it does today. There was the Capital but the Washington Monument was only a quarter built and most of the city was fields, where cows and animals strayed. Our production designer, Kalina Ivanov, who worked with me on Quiz Show, she probably had the toughest job of all and I think the film will speak for itself in terms of her skill.
