Swayze’s book details movie career
March 11, 2010 - Lisa Reed
I just finished reading “The Time of My Life” by Patrick Swayze and Lisa Niemi. (I read it in two sittings!) It was very interesting to read about their life — how they met and fell in love and spent their life together. Although they never had children, they had a rich life together from Patrick being a movie star, Lisa producing, directing and acting in movies, riding and showing horses together, dancing and producing songs, etc. They seemed to have enjoyed each other completely. Their book details all the movies Swayze starred in and how his character reflected his past or what he was going through at that time in his life. A little known fact is that he had been injured so many times in his life; while reading the book I couldn’t keep count of how many times he broke his legs dancing or from horse-riding accidents. When Swayze passed away from pancreatic cancer in September, the same type of cancer my husband’s father died from in 2007, it was very sad. I have always enjoyed Patrick Swayze’s movies. My favorite movie of his was, “Dirty Dancing.” Who doesn’t like that movie? It was the movie that rocked 1987. For his character Johnny Castle, Swayze was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for best actor in a motion picture musical that year.
