Heavy sigh ...Such a shame. I just heard that Patrick Swayze passed away today after a brutally long battle with pancreatic cancer. The National Enquirer was reporting last week that he had gone home to die with his family, but I didn't want to believe it.
Swayze became an international superstar playing Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing. Three years later he had his biggest hit, Ghost. And then there was Point Break, maybe not as big a hit, but damn, he was HOT in that. Those are just a few high points of a career that spanned more than 20 years.
Patrick passed away peacefully at home with his family at his side. He was 57. He will be missed, but he left a legacy of great movies.
