Kelly Preston in Jerry McGuire

Today we’re remembering Kelly Preston, a contemporary actress lost to breast cancer yesterday. She appeared in over 60 film and TV projects, including today’s addition to Silver Screen Selections – Jerry Macguire.

It’s hard to believe Jerry Macguire was released 24 years ago, given its timeless message of friendship, hope, integrity and love and a cast that is mostly still active in the film industry today. Kelly Preston plays Avery Bishop, Jerry Macguire’s feisty fiancé until Jerry (Tom Cruise) loses his job as a sports agent and goes it alone to pursue his philosophy of fewer clients, better service. He is joined immediately by accountant Dorothy Boyd (Renée Zellweger) and finds a soulmate for business and life.

Popular lines from this movie include “show me the money!” and “help me, help you!” Funny throughout, but it all comes down to romance in the end.

Jerry Maguire (1996) 139min | Comedy, Drama, Romance | 13 December 1996 (USA) Summary: When a sports agent has a moral epiphany and is fired for expressing it, he decides to put his new philosophy to the test as an independent agent with the only athlete who stays with him and his former colleague.
