In Case You’re Ever on Jeopardy

Jerry Parr was the Secret Service agent who saved Ronald Regan’s life in an attempted assassination. He was inspired to become an agent because, as a child he saw Ronald Regan starring in a 1939 movie called Code of the Secret Service.

“It was such a strange thing,” Mr. Parr said, “seeing this image on film when I was 9 years old, and then I ended up helping save his life.”
