With The Gay Divorcee, Pan begins a seven-year association with RKO that includes the choreography for every Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers musical through The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle, though he wins the Academy Award for Best Choreography with the “Fun House” number from the non-Astaire-Rogers Damsel in Distress. Throughout his tenure at the studio, Pan also designed dances for non-musical films such as A Dog of Flanders, Stage Door where he worked with Ann Miller and Ginger Rogers, Becky Sharp, and a variety of Katharine Hepburn films including Mary of Scotland and Quality Street.

Keywords:   The Gay Divorcee, RKO, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, A Dog of Flanders, Stage Door, Ann Miller, Becky Sharp, Katharine Hepburn, Mary of Scotland
