Patrick Swayze succumbs to pancreatic cancer

Probably his best known performance was in Dirty Dancing. I know that is the one movie that shoots to the front of my mind when I hear his name. The man was tough, really tough. He continued working through it all. And even refused pain killers during the filming of "The Beast".

My favorite Swayze movie is Roadhouse. Sure, it's a cheesy 80s action flick, but it's an entertaining cheesy 80s action flick.

Swayze's passing got me thinking (my blog post today)...and yes, I also like ROADHOUSE.
(nice & cheesy...can't agree more, John)
Also liked Uncommon Valor and Next of Kin.

Thanks, Patrick!
