Patrick Swayze

Wat kan ‘n mens sê as ‘n akteur soos Patrick Swayze sterf?  Hy het nooit ‘n Oscar gewen nie en sy Emmy benoemings het net benoemings gebly.  Is die kuns van toneelspeel regtig vasgevang in toekennings?  Of is ‘n geliefde akteur vasgevang in die harte van mense?

Gaan vra enige vrou wat is haar top 10 flieks van alle tye.  Ek gee jou ‘n brief dat Dirty Dancing en / of Ghost in daardie lys gaan wees.  Altwee die flieks sou nêrens gewees het sonder Patrick Swayze nie.

Ek lees Dirty Dancing word as ‘n Cult Classic gesien.  Patrick Swayze sal dus verewig lewe.

    Los Angeles – Here are some facts about actor Patrick Swayze, who died on Monday at the age of 57.

    * Dance always played a big role in Swayze’s life. His mother owned a Houston dance studio, where he met his future wife, Lisa Niemi, when they were teenagers. He studied ballet in New York before appearing as Danny Zuko in Grease on Broadway. He achieved stardom playing dance instructor Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing in 1987.

    * Dirty Dancing was a low-budget film that was expected to have a short run. Instead, it became a surprise hit that generated some $64m at the US box office and $214m worldwide and became a cult favorite. Swayze turned down an offer to star in a sequel.

    * Ghost, the 1990 beyond-the-grave love story starring Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, was an even bigger hit with a domestic box office take of more than $217m and $505m around the world.

    * Swayze’s first movie was Skatetown, USA in 1979. Other notable films included The Outsiders, Red Dawn, the TV miniseries North and South, Road House and To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.

    * Swayze announced in March2008 that he had pancreatic cancer but still went ahead with filming of a new cable television series, playing an FBI agent on The Beast. He also shot a small role in the movie Powder Blue while undergoing cancer treatment.

    * Swayze told an interviewer for the Daily Mail that he started drinking heavily after his father’s 1982 death. He went through a rehabilitation program more than 10 years later.

    * Swayze’s movie characters had some lines that became cultural catch phrases, such as, “Pain don’t hurt” from his role in “Road House.” Author Marcus Eder compiled Swayze’s movie lines and compared them to the words of Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu in “Nobody Puts Swayze in a Corner: The Tao of Swayze.” The title refers to his often-cited line “Nobody puts Baby in a corner!” from Dirty Dancing. Proceeds from the book went to the American Cancer Society.

    was inderdaad n mumbo. patrick swayze was nog bloed jonk toe hy in die 1980’s met onder ander kirstie alley in the north and the south gespeel het. dit was n goeie storie. ek het al dikwels gewonder hoekom die sauj dit nie weer uitgesaai het nie. hulle is dan reeds so lief vir heruitsendings.

    sauk. of dan sabc. te min van die prominente rolle word seker deur swart mense gespeel om n heruitsending te regverdig.

    😆 Ek het net die ander dag daaraan gedink oor hoeveel mense na Unchained Melody kan luister sonder om vlieënde stukke klei in hulle geestesoog te sien.
    Great memories.

    Nevermind die klei wat vlieg! Sam Wheat het towerhande. Kyk hoe smeer hy dit vol klei. Wanneer hy Molly uittrek is sy hande skoon.
