The shooting of Danny Hansford by wealthy preservationist Jim Williams at Williams' home in Savannah, Georgia was the subject of the best-selling 1994 true crime novel Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt. Claiming self defense, Jim Williams was acquitted of Hansford's murder after not one, not two but four trails. In 1997 this well-written, award winning novel was made into a confusing, disjointed movie by Clint Eastwood.
