Guarding Tess Presidential Library Letters

We are kicking off the new week looking at Guarding Tess Presidential Library Letters.

First of all, as a reminder with today being President’s Day the Post Office is closed.

Guarding Tess Presidential Library Letters

The 1994 movie, Guarding Tess, is set in Ohio. If you have not seen the movie, it gets its name for the name of the former First Lady character Tess Carlisle. Shirley MacLaine endearingly has the lead actress role; Nicolas Cage is the Secret Service agent “Guarding Tess”. The movie includes her having a Presidential Library established for her late husband.

Throughout the movie we’ll see her siting at her secretary desk hand writing letters with personal correspondence. Should you be looking for a movie to add to your list to watch, or re-watch, I hope you’ll include this one. It is especially nice seeing the special bond they have which the last ten minutes does a great job sharing.

Furthermore, here is a link to the 1994 movie review of Guarding Tess by Roger Ebert I’m including; sometimes I prefer to read reviews after seeing the movie!
