Throwback Thursday- Melty Patrick Swayze -Dirty Dancing (1987) & Ghost (1990)

To a certain generation of women, Patrick Swayze is the movie heartthrob they will never forget. Masculine, charming, but also sexy and sensitive.

While Mr. Swayze is no longer with us, his movies will remain with us.

Dirty Dancing (1987)

In the early 1960’s, Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) is on vacation with her family in the Catskills. She falls in with Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), a dance teacher at the hotel from the wrong side of the tracks.  When Johnny’s regular dance partner is unable to work, Baby takes her place.

Dirty Dancing is a classic. Baby’s coming of age story set to the music of the early 1960’s is perfection. There is something about this movie that no matter how many times I’ve seen it, I have to see it one more time.

Ghost (1990)

Sam  Wheat (Patrick Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) are perfectly happy together.  After Sam is murdered, his spirit remains on Earth to look after Molly and avenge his death.

This is one of the most romantic movies ever made. Only the coldest heart would refuse to melt at the idea of Sam’s devotion to Molly.There is also the scene with the clay that is just way too hot.

I recommend this movie.
