Hello Everyone:

While I can say that I enjoy all of Whitney Houston’s songs mainly because of her incredible voice; the two I like the best are “The Greatest Love of All” (Feb. 12th post link below) and “I’ll Always Love You”. “I’ll Always Love You” is one of my favorite songs from the movie The Bodyguard made in 1992 with Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.

The Bodyguard is a 1992 American romantic-thriller film starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. Costner stars as a former Secret Service Agent turned bodyguard who is hired to protect Houston’s character, a music star, from an unknown stalker.

 –
Lawrence Kasdan wrote the film in the 1970s, originally as a vehicle for Steve McQueen and Diana Ross.  This film was the acting debut of Houston. Kasdan’s first screenplay,  the film was originally proposed in 1976 with Steve McQueen and Diana Ross in the leads, but negotiations fell through as McQueen refused to be billed second to Ross.  It was proposed again in 1989, starring   Ryan O’Neal andRoss again in the leads. The project fell through due to irreconcilable differences in the relationship of the two stars. Costner stated that he based his character Frank Farmer on Steve McQueen; even cutting his hair like McQueen (who had died 12 years earlier).
 –
Whitney’s other two movies also enjoyable (see attached movie posters).  The Preacher’s Wife with Denzel Washington 
as the angel is a remake of the 1947 film The Bishop’s Wife starring Loretta Young and Cary Grant as the angel.
While I had never seen the music video below before yesterday;  I did see The Bodyguard movie in 1992 and it is one of my favorites along with Kevin Costner as one of my favorite actors.  In the music video; some scenes from the movie are seen while Whitney sings her infamous song

Whitney, We’ll always love you!



“I’ll Always Love You”
