Love for Patrick
The first time I saw Patrick Swayze was way back in 1985 in the mini-series "North and South." I remember the next day going to school with my head in a buzz with about this seriously cute actor.
So when he made it big in Dirty Dancing, I felt like the public was catching up with what I already knew about him. Patrick had depths to go along with those good looks. I have no shame to admit that along with loving the movie , I also had the soundtrack too. I had the tape. (Yes, this is right before CD's began to get big) I played over and over "She's Like The Wind" that he sang. Imagining he sang it about me.
Out of all his movies, one of my personal favorite Patrick movies has to be To Wong Foo. I like he played against type to play the graceful and elegant Miss Vida.
Now, Patrick is dancing with the angels. Thank you for all the movies you have given us. For me personally, I'll miss you.
