News just broke that Patrick Swayze has died. I am so sad right now:(
Yeah, it was the first thing I saw when I turned on my computer half an hour ago. Wow! There have been so many huge celebrity deaths this year. I guess this was another that wasn't unexpected, though. Still very sad...
Yeah, he seemed like a great guy- he will be missed. Pancreatic cancer is reportedly the most single deadly cancer with about only a 1% survival rate- he lived longer than most after his diagnosis.
I had a friend who died of Pancriatic cancer 6 weeks after she was diagnosed. I loved him in North and South, but ofcourse that had some of my favorite actors in it. Jonathan Frakes, Kirstie Alley, Genie Francis. and ofcourse dirty dancing
Confession: I have never seen Ghost (1990) but I have seen Dirty Dancing way too many times. I've also tried to watch Red Dawn a few times, always finding it a bit to violent. I love The Outsiders though.A current issue of Rolling Stone (with Stephen Colbert on the cover) had their 50 awesome things about TV and one of them was PS's Roadhouse which apparently is the most-shown movie in syndication at present.
I was just about to ask everyone's favourite movie with Patrick Swayze?
Mine is definitely Dirty Dancing, and The Outsiders is right up there, too.
Of course, it was a very small part in The Outsiders.
Ghost, Dirty Dancing, and North and South
Ghost. I've seen most of his others except for Roadhouse- I'll make a point to soon, though. It's a shame that it's taken a celebrity death to get some action going on the page. i think Patrick's passing has actually generated more responses than Michael's!
I really liked Ghost, Road House, To Wong Foo, and of course Dirty Dancing.
