Just like these posts, one of our local TV stations listed all the movies and conducted a poll as to everyones favorite which was Dirty Dancing by a 10% margin over Ghost. To be honest, my all time favorite role for him was in the TV mini series called North and South. Anybody remember that?

Wow, that is a very well-written article from the LA Times, Dangermouse. Really wonderful and it surely sounds like he was a fine man. Very sad.

I never saw the Outsiders, but I will see if I can get it from the library--I of course loved the book, and just re-read it earlier this year. S.E. Hinton did a wonderful job bringing those kids to life in the book; I hope the film does it justice.

Such a sweet love story with he and his wife, too--and I loved that picture of him from earlier this year sitting with his wife and dogs. Gotta love a man that loves animals that much.

Oh, that was filmed here in Charleston! We all stood around and gawked at the stars, plus they put dirt down on a bunch of streets downtown. As a kid, I thought that was great fun!
He was very hunky in his uniform, that's for sure!

I loved Dirty Dancing. I loved the character of Patrick Swayze and his real life love story. He died too young. My heart goes out to his widow.

Those two and "Road House" were perennial submarine-force favorites. I know several crews who wore out the "Road House" movies/videotapes.

IIRC Steve Jobs is one of the few "celebrity" pancreatic cancer survivors. Maybe survival rates are indeed linked to having an avocation or other insanely angry strong will to live.
