Dirty Dancing : A Celebration, Hardback Book


Named one of the most romantic movies of the past twenty-five years by Entertainment Weekly, Dirty Dancing is a touchstone in the lives of generations of moviegoers.

Now, for the first time, millions of fans have the opportunity to own the first-ever book celebrating the magic, music, and memories of the seminal film. With photographs, reminiscences from cast and crew, memorable quotes, trivia, and song lyrics, this gift-able package is a perfect and brand-new way to relive the film. Dirty Dancing is a timeless love story set in the summer of 1963 when Baby, an innocent seventeen-year-old, meets Johnny, a dashing hotel dance instructor at Kellerman's Catskills resort.

Its passionate story line and alluring dance numbers made the film a box-office hit and pop-culture phenomenon.

Though the film launched the careers of stars Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, and won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Grammy Award, and an Independent Spirit Award, it is best known for being an undeniably loved, oft-quoted piece of American cinematic history.

With the recent passing of Patrick Swayze, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the film takes on a new meaning and poignancy. This official celebration of the film, the stars, and the time is a must-have for any of the millions of people who love the film.
