Did you know?
- Patrick Swayze had to convince Jennifer Grey to be in this film, because she had disliked him so much while filming Red Dawn (1984).
- The very famous scene where Johnny and Baby are practicing their dancing and they are crawling towards each other on the floor wasn’t intended to be part of the film; they were just messing around and were warming up to do the real scene, but the director liked it so much he kept it in the film.
- Patrick Swayze was offered $6 million to reprise his role as Johnny for a sequel. Swayze wasn’t a fan of sequels and turned it down.
- Jennifer Grey, at 27, was 10 years older than the character of Baby. During her audition, she had 5 minutes to prove she could play younger, and that she had the moves for the role.
