Based on the best-selling book, the 1996 Clint Eastwood-directed film "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" tells the story of the shooting of Danny Hansford by prominent Savannah resident John Williams in his home, Mercer House. Williams would go on to become the only person in the history of Georgia to be tried four times for the same crime. He was ultimately acquitted and died unexpectedly six months later. His sister acquired the house and has opened it to the public.
