While Houston covered Parton's song for a film called The Bodyguard, that wasn't its motion picture debut. The first time "I Will Always Love You" appeared in a movie was way back in 1974, the same year of its release.
The film was called Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, and starred country legend and actor Kris Kristofferson. Parton's original recording of the song was used in the film, which increased its popularity even more.
