Do you remember watching Dirty Dancing? On this day in 1987, the classic movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey was released in theaters. A gifted dancer, Swayze had studied ballet for years under the tutelage of his mother Patsy, who was the director of the Houston Jazz Ballet Company. The surprise box office hit instantly established Swayze as one of Hollywood’s leading men. He would go on to star in many more notable films, including GhostPoint Break and Donnie Darko.

Today the film is still considered one of the most popular and beloved Hollywood films.
