The Pan family’s introduction to New York City in the 1920s is luxurious and spectacular but when their money runs out, the members find themselves doing menial labor. Hermes and Vasso earn money by dancing in a speakeasy and eventually they find employment performing in the chorus of various Broadway shows, appearing together in a college musical called Happy. He also appears with the Marx Brothers in Animal Crackers performing the famous “Hooray for Captain Spaulding.” Pan’s coworkers note his resemblance to Fred Astaire and Hermes meets Ginger Rogers when they are both cast in Top Speed. Pan’s personal magnetism, sensitivity, and good looks earn him the attention of people of both sexes from all walks of life.
