Hermes Pan stages dances for James Cagney in Never Steal Anything Small at Universal-International Pictures before starting work on Porgy and Bess for Samuel Goldwyn. He then moves on to television where he wins an Emmy Award for his choreography for An Evening with Fred Astaire. He returns to Twentieth Century-Fox to choreograph The Blue Angel and Can-Can, the film that scandalized Russian Premier Nikita Khrushchev during his visit to the United States. For Astaire, Pan staged the dance sequences in The Pleasure of His Company at Paramount and Another Evening with Fred Astaire and Astaire Time for television. For Ross Hunter, Pan choreographed a $4,000,000 production of Flower Drum Song created a spectacular dream ballet to the music of “Sunday.”
