Sadly, Patrick Swayze passed away today. I enjoyed his films. Most remember him for "Ghost" or "Dirty Dancing", but I choose to remember him in "Red Dawn," "Road House," and "Point Break." The cry "Wolverines!!!" still echoes in the depths of my teenage memories.
The ultimate in bad-assery was when Swayze's character literally tiger-claw's this bad guys throat out in "Road House." I assure you, the bad guy really had it coming. The closest image I could find was from this NY times page.
Cancer sucks and it isn't fair. Rest in peace, Patrick Swayze.
