This Dance Scene Impressed Everyone 28 Years Ago. Do You Still Remember It?

My favorite movie ever! I could watch this scene thousands of times! Absolutely lovely film, dance and song! Hard to believe they didn’t stand each other in real life!

It’s hilarous! There was no one hotter than Patrick Swayze!!! He is the real deal! One of the greatest movies/scenes/songs of all time! My goal in life is to learn this dance!

Johnny pulls Baby up on stage at the end of season revue at Kellermans. Features the classic «Time of my life». “Dirty Dancing” premiered 28 years ago this summer. The movie was not supposed to be successful. But we love it even now!

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey apparently hated each other from their previous collaboration in “Red Dawn.” An original main sponsor of the film, Clearasil, backed out when writer and producer Eleanor Bergstein refused to cut the film’s abortion subplot. Test screenings were a disaster.

But the film prevailed and ended up having a worldwide gross of just under $214 million dollars on top of winning an Oscar and multiple Grammys for the music. The soundtrack even beat both Michael Jackson and Bruce Springsteen on the charts. Nobody puts “Dirty Dancing” in a corner, and that’s why today it’s still one of the greatest films of all time.

ABC’s new Dirty Dancing remake is trying to give viewers the time of their lives again, but who do we owe it all to? There’s no doubt Baby and Johnny’s dance number to «(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life» at the end of Dirty Dancing is the most iconic moment of the classic 1987 flick. It’s the lift that launched a thousand recreations and created a pop culture touchstone. So obviously, all eyes are on ABC to get that scene right in their remake.
