For obvious reasons, most of the TV and other appreciations of
the late Patrick Swayze have been heavy on clips of his role as the title spook
in Jerry Zucker's "Ghost" (1990). Never
mind I cried like a baby when I first saw it (don't ask). But I think Swayze is
miscast: with his impish, faun-like features and the coiled, sensuous menace and grace
of his powerful body, he seemed the kind of shade who would be more at home
somewhere other than the celestial destination implied at the end of the film.
