There are several things that are notable and in keeping with our second film in our Never Work With Children or Animals series. Not only was My Bodyguard the directorial debut for young Tony Bill, it was the film debut of Adam Baldwin, and an uncredited Jennifer Beals.
The 1980 comedy-drama film was also Joan Cusak's first major role. Released by 20th Century Fox, and written by Alan Ormsby the film stars Chris Makepeace, Adam Baldwin, Matt Dillon, Martin Mull, and Ruth Gordon.
Variety had this to say about the performances in this film: "In his directorial debut, Tony Bill assembles a truly remarkable cast of youngsters with little or no previous acting experience."
Don't miss this low-budget film that today is regarded as one of Hollywood's small gems.
