The jacket that Patrick Swayze wore in Dirty Dancing, sold for $62,500

A leather jacket that actor Patrick Swayze wore in icon movie Dirty Dancing has sold for $62,500 (£48,270) at an auction in Los Angeles.

The buyer is a Hollywood memorabilia collector, who only identified himself as Glenn.

Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi said she had “a lot of mixed feelings” about selling the items.


Despite strong opposition from Swayze’s niece Danielle Swayze, the auction went ahead.

“These were family heirlooms, It’s a slap in the face that she’s selling these precious memories,” she said.

Besides the jacket, hundreds of other items belonging to Swayze – including a surfboard from Point Break and a shirt he wore in Ghost – also went under the hammer on Friday, BBC reports.

Swayze was 57 when he died in 2009 from pancreatic cancer.
