Sad News

I was sorry to hear that actor Patrick Swayze is fighting pancreatic cancer.

Although he is best-known for GHOST and DIRTY DANCING, my favorite Swayze production was the ABC miniseries NORTH AND SOUTH, which originally aired in two volumes in 1985 and 1986. (We will ignore 1994's BOOK III, which can't hold a candle to the originals.) There are many nice web pages on the series, including this and here.

Last year he was said to be slated to play Pa in a musical theater production of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, but he is apparently no longer associated with that production, which opens in Minnesota this July.
