Edelstein on Swayze

Over at his blog, New York's David Edelstein remembers Patrick Swayze: "In Dirty Dancing, Swayze combined brawny physicality and feline grace in a way that made millions of women (and a lot of men) weak in the knees. That’s still a singular feat in American movies, where there has always been a schism between hoofers and jocks. Swayze behaved as if the divide never existed." [The Projectionist]
