Patrick Swayze was his generation's renaissance man. This August, Paramount Network is planning the ultimate birthday salute. The documentary will revolve around the upbringing, career and subsequent death of actor Patrick Swayze. The actor was best known for his roles in Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Point Break, Roadhouse and more, but unfortunately died in September 2009 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. I Am Patrick Swayze is directed by filmmaker Adrian Buitenhuis, director of the documentaries I Am Heath Ledger, I Am Sam Kinison, and I Am Paul Walker previously, as well as producing work and other documentary projects. This has not premiered at any festivals. The Paramount Network will debut Buitenhuis' I Am Patrick Swayze doc on their channel starting August 18th coming up. Who's interested?
I did remember him these days, but it was like connecting some pop cultural trivia with some films I was thinking about. He was not some great actor, but it looks like he enjoyed life as much as he could. Although, he died relatively young. That's sad ...

Well said. I never could take him seriously. He seemed a bit airy fairy new age platitude speaking guy and made some pretty bad movies. From what I understand he was a good guy and never did anyone any harm. That pancreatic cancer thing sure took him out quick and when he was young. I doubt I'll watch this because I just never found him of interest.

Glad to serve you. You see, to me, these days, there is not much to like and I recall the great line: 'The uncritical acceptance typical of the herd mentality is where ignorance takes seed and flourishes.' I ain't of the herd mentality. Are you?
