33 Films of Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze died today, at the age of 57, of pancreatic cancer.  He was probably best known for his roles in Dirty Dancing and Ghost, but had a sizable list of film credits – even if they weren’t all as successful.

He also cut quite the handsome swath. both in his movie roles and in real life, and was People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 1991.
