Patick Swayze dies of Pancreatic Cancer aged just 57

I was so saddened to hear today that the actor Patrick Swayze has sadly lost his battle with the pancreatic cancer that he was diagnosed with some months ago.

I remember many of his films during the 80's and 90's such as Roadhouse,Dirty dancing and of course the classic film Ghost.

The great thing about the guy was that he always hated the arrogant,overpaid showbiz types, he once said that he thought paying Hollywood actors huge salaries was "raping the industry and taking food out of the mouths of people".

Patrick Swayze was responsible for some of the most iconic movie scenes ever - not something many actors can lay claim to and far more importantly he worked tirelessly for charity and environmentally causes, something that so many "A" Lister's tend to forget to do when they are blessed with great success !

R.I.P Patrick.

Here are clips from a few of his films........
