派屈克史威茲走過《熱舞》徒留《生死戀》

派屈克從小受到舞蹈家母親的影響,自幼在芭蕾舞校習舞,高中還身兼體操好手及足球健將。他原本計劃進入芭蕾舞壇,卻不幸在足球比賽受了傷,他只好被迫接受戲劇訓練,轉進百老匯演出音樂劇,一連演出了《火爆浪子》等劇,頗受矚目,也因此遲至二十七歲時才演出處女作《美國冰宫》(Skatetown,USA)。接著演了幾部戲分不多的電影《長驅直入》、《小教父》等;一九八五年他在迷你影集《北與南》(North and South)中,扮演命運乖舛的南方軍官,表現精彩令他初獲矚目;該影集當時也在華視每周日晚間播出,收視不賴。
 
一九八七年他主演小成本歌舞片《熱舞十七》,描述他身為舞蹈老師竟與女學生因舞生情,在小鎮引發軒然大波。推出前本來不被看好,沒想到意外大受歡迎,全球竟然熱賣了70億6200萬元台幣;多才多藝的他,填詞演唱的抒情曲《她像風一樣》(She's Like the Wind)被選為該片插曲,還拿下美國告示牌單曲榜第3名。
 
當然他最知名的作品,還是一九九○年與黛咪摩爾(Demi Moore)合演的《第六感生死戀》(Ghost)。該片描述人鬼相隔的淒美戀情,配上黑人靈媒琥碧戈德柏(Whoopi Goldberg)的爆笑串場,不僅賺盡天下有情人眼淚,拿下美國當年終票房亞軍(僅輸《小鬼當家》),全球賣座還超過170億元台幣。派屈克與黛咪在片中熊抱捏陶的畫面,也成為銀幕經典鏡頭,連「星爺」也與張曼玉偷學諧仿。
 
該片的賣座,還助長一九六五年的老歌《奔放的旋律》再度走紅,證明音樂與影像搭配的力量無與倫比。一九六二年由比爾麥德利(Bill Medley)與巴比哈特菲德(Bobby Hatfield)組成的「正義兄弟」(The Righteous Brothers)二重唱,曾在六○年代紅極一時,當時他們最紅的歌《You’ve Lost the Lovin’ Feelin’》與《(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration》,分別拿下雙周與三周告示牌單曲冠軍,《奔》曲只拿下第四名。但《第》片出現後,局勢丕變,《奔放的旋律》迅速成為他倆最知名的代表作。
 
甚至這張由《阿拉伯的勞倫斯》配樂大師莫利斯賈赫(Maurice Jarre),調製的既驚悚又抒情的小品配樂,也完全被忽略。不過,這張也並非莫利斯的佳作,在專輯中,扣除《奔放的旋律》外,他先以主題旋律《Ghost》勾勒出風雨欲來的氣氛,詭奇、大量的銅管樂磅礡出現,在農曆七月聽來真令人膽戰心驚,其他則各以一段旋律闡釋各個主角的心境轉折,聽來稍嫌平淡,難怪會被主題曲搶盡風頭。
 
派屈克因《熱舞十七》與《第六感生死戀》兩度入圍金球獎音樂或喜劇類最佳男主角獎,演藝生涯爬上顛峰。九○年代後,他少有賣座片,銀幕表現卻一樣精采。一九九五年男扮女裝演出喜劇片《豔倒群雌》,3度角逐金球獎影帝,儘管未獲獎,但他的演技早被肯定。
 
去年初當他驚傳罹患胰臟癌第四期時,醫生一度宣判只剩五星期可活,但他不服輸,還跟家人說:「那我們可有硬仗要打了。」撐過一年的他,今年初接受ABC新聞網主持人芭芭拉華特斯訪問時還說:「我大概只剩兩年可活;但希望能夠多活五年。」只可惜他奮力搏鬥病魔,無奈仍回天乏術。
 
《熱舞十七》與《第六感生死戀》的瀟灑身影,也永存影迷心中。
 
《Unchained Melody》
Oh, my love
my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
and time goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
Godspeed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow to the sea,
to the sea
to the open arms of the sea
lonely rivers sigh 'wait for me, wait for me'
I'll be coming home wait for me

Oh, my love
my darling
I've hungered for your touch
a long lonely time
and time goes by so slowly
and time can do so much
are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
Godspeed your love to me
 


《She’s Like the Wind》
She's like the wind through my tree
She rides the night next to me
She leads me through moonlight
Only to burn me with the sun
She's taken my heart
But she doesn't know what she's done

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

I look in the mirror and all I see
Is a young old man with only a dream
Am I just fooling myself
That she'll stop the pain
Living without her
I'd go insane

Feel her breath on my face
Her body close to me
Can't look in her eyes
She's out of my league
Just a fool to believe
I have anything she needs
She's like the wind

Feel your breath on my face
Your body close to me
Can't look in your eyes
You're out of my league
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
(She's like the wind)
Just a fool to believe
(Just a fool to believe)
She's like the wind
(Just a fool to believe)
Just a fool to believe
She's like the wind

(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)
(She's like the wind)
(Just a fool...)
