1. In August 1987, a little film named "Dirty Dancing" opened in theaters and captured the hearts of many--making Patrick Swayze into a certified heartthrob! Admit it: You know all the words to "Dirty Dancing," and you swoon every time you hear that famous line "nobody puts Baby in a corner." You may have even tried the famous dance lift yourself! There is even a TV remake of the movie in the works, casting Abigail Breslin in the role of Baby, and Colt Prattes in the iconic role that made Swayze into a star. Have you seen the original "Dirty Dancing"?
