Following two minor acting stints – on the '80s sitcoms Gimme a Break! and Silver Spoons – Houston became a full-fledged movie star, headlining 1992's The Bodyguard with Kevin Costner. The film, released in November, grossed $410 million worldwide, and its soundtrack, featuring "I'm Every Woman," "I Have Nothing," "Run to You" and "I Will Always Love You," became the best-selling soundtrack of all time.
