beyond fred, ginger & gene

  A film that has special meaning - the first one that I saw in Sacramento when I went to work for McClatchy. I saw it at the Capitol Theater (long gone) and I lost myself at Kellerman's Lodge (also long gone), where Jack Weston and Lonny Price kept their employees truly subordinate - except for Johnny Castle. Nobody put him in a corner; ditto for Baby Houseman.

 The film: "Dirty Dancing" (1987)

 The director: Emil Ardolino

 The number: “(I Had) The Time of My Life”

 The composers-singers: Bill Medley and Jennifer Warren

 The choreographer: Kenny Ortega

 The dancers: Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey and company

 The cinematographer: Jeff Jur

 The editor: Peter C. Frank

 The production designer: David Chapman
