On this day in 1992 (Nov. 25), Whitney Houston made her big screen debut, as The Bodyguard premiered in theaters. In the film, the second-highest-grossing film of the year, she co-stars with Kevin Costner. Houston plays a music superstar (not a far reach), while Costner plays a former Secret Service agent-turned-bodyguard, who develops a close, personal relationship with his client.
The romantic thriller’s soundtrack became the best-selling soundtrack since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking U.S. sales in 1991. It ranks sixth to-date among all albums, with 12.1 million copies sold. On March 13, 1993, the set made Houston the first female artist to place three songs in the Billboard Hot 100 chart top 20 simultaneously: "I Will Always Love You," "I’m Every Woman" and "I Have Nothing."
Here are a few highlight tracks off the soundtrack that spent 20 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and the film's trailer to refresh your memory.
