Patrick Swayze dead, age 57

ENTERTAINMENT - Actor Patrick Swayze died yesterday at the age of 57 from pancreatic cancer. He died at home with his family by his side after a long battle with the disease.

Patrick Swayze is most famous for the films Dirty Dancing, Ghost and his role in the mini-series North and South.

Other noteworthy films include:
Uncommon Valor
Steel Dawn
Point Break
Donnie Darko
George and the Dragon

Steel Dawn struck us as particularly of interest. True, its low budget and the plot is lame, but that just means the actors are forced to do their best to hold it together. It should be worth a laugh to watch and see what the actor was like when he was younger.

  1. For an even younger Swayze, I think "Red Dawn" really demonstrates his future acting abilities and the roles he would come to embody.

    Did you know he even appeared in an episode of M*A*S*H?
