Thoughts On The 25th Anniversary Of The Bodyguard

Saturday will be the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

Rachel Marron (the late Whitney Houston) is a pop singer who is being stalked and harassed. Her management team hires Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner), a former secret service agent to protect her. While Frank’s past haunts him, he insists on security measures that don’t sit well with Rachel and her entourage.  Then things take a turn when Rachel and Frank’s relationship becomes more than star and bodyguard and the stalker gets a little too close for comfort.

This movie is nothing if a modern classic. Not only for the soundtrack and the immortal song “I Will Always Love You”, but for the story of a relationship, both personal and professional that changes the lives of both main characters.

Did anyone else see the American Music Awards last night? Christina Aguilera was beautiful.

Here is to the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard. May future generations of film and music fans come to know and love this film as we have.
