Dirty Dancing is a 1987 romance film directed by Emile Ardolino. The film starred Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, and Jerry Orbach.
Filmed at Mountain Lake in Virginia and at Lake Lure in North Carolina (although the film was set in Upstate New York), Dirty Dancing was distributed by Vestron Pictures. The movie became a major hit after it was released, despite being a low-budget film with no major stars (at the time). Its soundtrack is one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time, and it spawned several hit singles, including "She's Like the Wind," written and sung by Swayze; "Hungry Eyes" sung by Eric Carmen; and "(I've Had) The Time of My Life", composed by Franke Previte and sung by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, which won an Oscar for Best Original Song.
