In Memoriam

Patrick Swayze

Another well known and beloved actor has passed away. The cause, once more, was cancer.

I've seen a few of Swayze's movies, most memorably, Dirty Dancing, Ghost and Red Dawn, and while I didn't consider him a great actor, he could hold his own.

Mostly, he brought to the screen a raw masculinity and handsomeness that was magnetic and forced you to watch his every move.

I remember him from a TV Miniseries as well, North and South, and TV was were he had been planning a short lived comeback by starring in a new series that obviously suffered from his inability to nurture it properly.

Swayze was only 57 years old.
