We’ve been saddened here at Movie Talk to learn of the death of Patrick Swayze after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer. Most of the many tributes and obituaries that have been pouring out today describe him as “Dirty Dancing actor Patrick Swayze”, which overlooks what a varied 30-year acting career he had. In an attempt to redress the balance we’ve put together this gallery of some of his best film and TV appearances – from The Outsiders and Red Dawn to his recent role in The Beast. And, yes, we’ve put Dirty Dancing in there too, and it’s that film’s Jennifer Grey who remembers him as “a real cowboy with a tender heart”.
