Whitney Stars in First Film: The Bodyguard

In 1992, Whitney starred opposite Kevin Costner in the romantic thriller The Bodyguard, a film about a man (Costner) commissioned to protect a superstar (Houston) whose life is being threatened by an unidentified stalker. The soundtrack for the movie featured "I Will Always Love You," "I Have Nothing" and "I'm Every Woman," three more of Houston's classics, and sold a million copies in one week. It went on to win the coveted Grammy Award for Album of the Year and was certified 17 times platinum by 1999. The album has sold more than 44 million copies worldwide to date and carries the distinction of being the best-selling soundtrack in history.
