I am shocked at his passing; I knew he was very sick but I was under the impression he had "won" his battle. What a likable guy that Patrick Swayze was:(

The Question Mark said...

Dirty Dancing & Ghost were awesome, but I remember Patrick most from a TV mini-series about the Civil War called "North & South", where he played a southerner named Orry Maine. Does anyone else know that show?

That's the third time I've come on this website and saw a great man has died, first Patrick McGohan and then John Hughes

You bet Question Mark! It was a great mini series, even if they weren't as true to the books as they should have been. I was in college when the mini series took place. He was one of the main characters. I liked Patrick Swayze and admired him and his wife for their long marriage and faithfulness to each other. It was very refreshing for a Hollywood couple. I saw the Barbara Walters interview with the two earlier in the year...I don't know how she will handle things without him there anymore.

I agree with The Question Mark and LVGirl: "North and South" was brilliant. I seriously only watched the three book adaptations last week (Patrick wasn't in the last one, save for one scene), and over that week my girlfriend and I had begun referring to Patrick as 'Ori'. I'm deeply saddened by his passing. "The Beast" has only just begun to screen in Australia, and it's gratifying (not to mention inspiring) to see a man who was so sick, and yet delivered some of his best work in a great career. He will be missed.

I was greatly saddened by this--we've lost a great talent. I always wish he'd worked even more than he had, which I guess is the best compliment I can give.

Count me amongst those that dug "North and South" too-I even have it on DVD.

@Loretta: Agreed. I would have loved to see even more from him.
