Code of the Secret Service

The film Ronald Reagan called “the worst picture I ever made” (Code of the Secret Service),

inspired Jerry Parr to join the Secret Service.

Later, Parr saved President Reagan’s life during the 1981 assassination attempt.

On March 30, 1981, John Hinckley, Jr. opened fire on the President as he exited the Washington Hilton Hotel after giving a speech.

Upon hearing gunshots, Parr pushed Reagan into the President's limousine, which started heading to the White House.

Reagan thought at first that Parr had broken one of his ribs when he pushed him.

The agent noticed Reagan was having difficulty breathing and bright frothy blood was coming from his mouth. Parr then ordered the limousine to go to the hospital.
