Good girl Sandy Olsson (Olivia Newton-John) and greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta) fell in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they're now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance?
Sam Wheat is a banker, Molly Jensen is an artist, and the two are madly in love. However, when Sam is murdered by friend and corrupt business partner Carl Bruner over a shady business deal, he is left to roam the Earth as a powerless spirit.

When Willie is fighting with Sam just prior to shooting him you can see that the gun Willie is using (Walther PPK or similar clone) is in the safe position (i.e. manual safety/decocker is vertical rather than horizontal). Such a gun should not fire. See more »
Well, I loved it. I was spellbound the whole time.
I could tell. So could the rest of the audience with that resonating snore of yours.

The opening credits are half transparent like a ghost. See more »
There are two different versions for the same scene. In one Oda Mae talks to Molly about Sam' s ghost behind Molly' s apartment door. However, in the other version, Molly comes down to the street and meets Oda Mae, and at the next scene they are discussing about Sam at a coffee place. See more »
Ghost is easily Swayze's 2nd best film. It has a great love story, good acting, and holds up nearly 30 years later.
The film tells the story of Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore). Sam is a banker and Molly is an artist, and they strongly love each other. Sam then gets murdered by his business partner Carl (Tony Goldwyn), and is now on Earth as a spirit. He then meets a psychic, Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) and must have her help him protect Molly from Carl and his goons.
The film had a pretty basic story, and had sweet romance to it. Swayze and Moore had great chemistry, and he also shared great screen time with Whoopi Goldberg.
The movie went in a pretty fine pace. Some parts kind of dragged on for too long, but wasn't bad at all.
The ending is sad, especially if you watch it now since Patrick Swayze is no longer with us. But regardless, Ghost is still a pretty good movie and I would call it a classic without a doubt.
