Print this article After losing his battle with prostate cancer, actor and heartthrob Patrick Swayze will be best remembered for his long and diverse acting career. One way to enjoy his hit movies again and again is to take home copies for family and friends to enjoy.
Many teenagers in the 1980s saw and loved the movie, "Dirty Dancing." Here, Swayze played a dance instructor who meets the young Frances "Baby" Houseman (Jennifer Grey) on vacation in the Catskills. The pair learned a lot about dancing and each other in this classic coming-of-age tale.
For those who prefer comedies, one of Swayze's best roles involves dressing up in women's clothes for "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar." He and two other drag queens learn the meaning of friendship, togetherness and compassion after they became stranded in a small town en route to a Los Angeles beauty pageant.
Swayze even forayed into animated films, lending his voice to "The Fox and The Hound 2." This film continued the story of two best friends and how they put aside their differences.
