Patrick Swayze lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today, September 15th 2009. The talented actor (and singer) was a much-loved figure in the film industry.
Swayze was 57 years of age, married for 34 years but didn't have any children.
If you asked most people to choose their favourite Swayze flick, they'd be stumped. He stole our hearts in Dirty Dancing, made us want to take up pottery lessons in Ghost and gave us shivers (and a thing for surfies) in Point Blank. Let's not forget Red Dawn, The Outsiders and Road House. What was yours?
