The line that still roars 30 years later

Life & Style Weekend - - RELAX - WITH Letea Ca­van­der

“NO­BODY puts Baby in the cor­ner.” It was the line the late Pa­trick Swayze did not want to say, ac­cord­ing to Dirty Danc­ing writer Eleanor Berg­stein in a story by the Huff­in­g­ton Post.

And yet it be­came one of the most en­dur­ing lines of the movie, which chalks up the 30th an­niver­sary of its US re­lease this week.

The film, in which Frances “Baby’’ House­man (Jen­nifer Grey) falls in love with a camp’s dance in­struc­tor, Johnny Cas­tle (Swayze), broaches such themes as preg­nancy out of wed­lock, work­ing class vs mid­dle class, and for­bid­den love.

All the ac­tion takes place dur­ing a sum­mer at a fam­ily-friendly re­sort in the Catskills. Take a trip down mem­ory lane this week­end, and set some time aside to watch a movie clas­sic.
