A Film about Choreographer HERMES PAN
Directed by ROBERT KUPERBERG
Featuring FRANK SINATRA, RITA HAYWORTH, GINGER ROGERS, KIM NOVAK, SHIRLEY MACLAINE, CYD CHARISSE, BOB FOSSE, SALLY FORREST and many more.

Hermes Pan began choreographing Hollywood musicals in 1933, when his long-standing collaboration with Fred Astaire began. For over three decades he was the man who made the stars dance - Ginger Rogers, Betty Grable, Rita Hayworth, Cyd Charisse, Shirley MacLaine and many others. Assimilating elements from the multitude of cultures that co-existed around him, Pan created a style of dance that was truly American. In this programme, Pan introduces a dance extravaganza which takes viewers back to the days when the musical was all the rage, with extracts from My Gal Sal, with Rita Hayworth and Hermes Pan himself; Royal Wedding, with Fred Astaire; Kiss Me Kate, with Bob Fosse, Ann Miller and Carol Haney; Sombrero, with Cyd Charisse; Pal Joey, with Frank Sinatra, Rita Hayworth and Kim Novak; Silk Stockings, with Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse; Excuse My Dust, with Sally Forrest; Three Little Words, with Fred Astaire and Vera Allen; and the scene from Joseph L. Mankiewicz's Cleopatra, starring Elizabeth Taylor, when she makes her entry into Rome. This is the last programme made with Pan before his death in 1990 and is a fascinating combination of irresistible archive film of the best of Hollywood's dancers, and the unique viewpoint of one of cinema's greatest choreographers.
