It was 28 years ago that the cult classic Dirty Dancing opened in theaters everywhere. It has since gone on to gross over 200 million! Did you know that Dirty Dancing was the first film to sell a million copies on video? Wow.
However, the film almost didn’t get released! Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey still had a bad taste in their mouth from working together on “Red Dawn” and they hated each other. In addition, the writer/producer refused to cut the movie’s abortion story line and the main sponsor, Clearisil, dropped out. Test screenings went poorly. The list goes on and on.
After overcoming all kinds of obstacles the film was finally released and is now one of the most popular movies of it’s time. People just love this movie!
