Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in one of the most memorable scenes of all time

Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in one of the most memorable scenes of all time

Sad news.  Actor Patrick Swayze, probably best known for, ironically, Ghost, passed away today after a difficult struggle with pancreatic cancer.  He was just 57 years old.

I’m not a huge fan of Swayze, but he’s a guy that I’m likely to recall with fond memories twenty years from now.   If nothing, he’s been in some real memorable movies.  In all likelihood, women will remember Swayze most for his vomit-inducing performance in Dirty Dancing, though my favourite film with him was probably the surfy action flick  Point Break with Keanu Reeves.  Sure, he was in ‘classics’ such as Road House and Next of Kin, but I consider those guilty pleasures rather than truly crap films.  The Outsiders, Young Blood, City of Joy, Donnie Darko – that’s a pretty solid filmography.  He will be missed.
