In 1980, a movie theater poster asked “Terrorized in the toilets? Chased after school? Shaken down for your lunch money?” The posters then suggested: “Get a bodyguard!” The movie those statements advertised was titled My Bodyguard, and it was about a teenage boy named Clifford. The movie began with Clifford being bullied at school. Then one day, another student named Ricky rescued him. Everyone was afraid of Ricky because he was said to have killed several people, including his brother. That gave Clifford an idea. He offered to pay Ricky to protect him. Ricky declined. But then they became friends, and Ricky began to protect Clifford anyway.
