How to search IMDb for location AND actor/producer/director

Is there a way to search the database for all movies made in a location like Savannah or Georgia and with a specific actor?

The reason I am asking is I am a reference librarian. We are asked from time to time about movies filmed in Savannah. Currently, we are trying to answer a question about an actor and the movies he made in Georgia and South Carolina. I have found how to search by location or actor, but not by location AND a specific actor, producer or director.

Thank you.

Yes, use the Advanced Title Search feature found here: http://www.imdb.com/search/title
You can specify the filming location and cast/crew to search for (for example, typing in Tom Hanks for the cast/crew and Savannah for the filming location gave a result of Forrest Gump). Hope this will be useful to you.

Yes, it is possible. Go to Advanced Title Search at http://www.imdb.com/search/title .

Scroll down to the Filming Locations section and enter the location you are looking for.

Then scroll down further to the Cast/Crew section. Type in the person's name and wait a few seconds. A pop-up box should appear below listing persons with that name or similar names. Click on the name in the pop-up box referring to the individual you are looking for. The person's name and their name constant (the letters nm followed by a number) will then appear in the Cast/Crew box.

Then scroll down and click "Search".

If the person worked on any titles for which IMDb has that filming location listed, a list of those titles will appear on the next screen.

Good luck!
