On this day in 1987, somebody ‘put Baby in a corner’!
Dirty Dancing debuted 33 years ago! It was based on the real-life of screenwriter Eleanor Bergstein (who was also nicknamed ‘Baby’).
Despite their on-camera chemistry, Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze hated each other. And that famous swimming scene in the lake was actually shot in October – when the water was just 40 degrees.
It won 2 Academy Awards and a Grammy for that song you won’t be able to get out your head now.
