The star of DIRTY DANCING, GHOST, POINT BREAK, and the greatest movie ever made--ROAD HOUSE--is dead of pancreatic cancer at age 57. You can read the New York Times obituary of Patrick Swayze here.
I wish now I had watched Swayze's recent A&E crime drama, THE BEAST, when it was on. Knowing he was in treatment for his cancer while shooting a grueling action series on the snowy streets of Chicago makes his battle all the more impressive.
