Forget The BodyGuard, this is where it happened first.
Remember that power ballad from Whitney Houston and the movie, The Bodyguard? Well, Dolly sang it first in this movie, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas.
Burt Reynolds plays the excellently named Sheriff Ed Earl who looks after a sleepy little Texas town that happens to have the worst kept secret in Texas at its town borders. Dolly Parton plays Miss Mona, the Mama of the Brothel, and Ed Earls mistress.
Burt and Dolly make the movie a must see for me, but when you add in Dom DeLuise as Melvin P. Thorpe, the TV campaigner that wants the whorehouse shut down, and
Charles Durning as The Governor that has to make the decision, this movie becomes another top 10, must own, watch every rainy Sunday possible, hit.
