Patrick Swayze : August 18, 1952 – September 14, 2009

Patrick Swayze, a leading man in most 80s to early 90s romance movies, has passed away last Monday due to cancer. Although stereotyped due to his "1991 sexiest man alive" looks, and starred in some real duds, he remains etched eternally in filmdom due to surprise super hit Dirty "Nobody puts Baby in a corner" Dancing (1987), sappy supernatural romance drama Ghost (1990) with Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg and a rare cross dressing adventure featuring him beside action man Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo. Curiously, all three movies are accompanied by a memorable song each. Dirty Dancing ~ (I've Had) The Time Of My Live, Ghost ~ Unchained Melody, To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything! Julie Newmar ~ I Am Body Beautiful (which became da ultimo theme for certain "men" in certain clubs...)
