This may have been the last picture I took of HERMES PAN. I know it was the last Dancer's Picnic that we attended.
This makes me smile, as I used to tease him about only having one sports jacket. Actually, he had several of these. He liked the look, and he stayed with it.
Maybe that's where 'I got it.'
Anyway, here's the WONDERFUL HERMES PAN. I still can't get over the fact that when I was a kid, I'd see his name on the screen and not even know if that was a man, or a woman.
I eventually found out he helped Choreograph all of FRED ASTAIRE'S numbers, and worked on some of thee biggest films.
To think.........THIS is/was the man who discovered me, put me to work, and set me on the path of my career.
Just ask me how much I owe him. Ask me how much I loved him.

In the picture posted here, HERMES and CHRISTOPHER are attending an Awards Function honouring HERMES. The woman on the right is ANGIE BLUE. ANGIE was PAN'S assistant for many, many years. That is, until she gave up the business and became a Nun!
This photo was taken at one of the Dancer's Picnics. Circa, mid-80's.
