"From This Moment On” from “Kiss Me Kate"

kiss me kate 1


Hi All -

When Cole Porter’s musical Kiss Me Kate was inevitably given a movie version, the choreographer of record was Hermes Pan. However, the “From This Moment On” number was choreographed by one of that number’s dancers. The dancer was Bob Fosse, who plays Hortensio (in the yellow cap)  and what was to become the unique Fosse style was immediately apparent. His dance partner in the number is the wonderful Carol Haney.

KISS ME KATE directed by George Sidney (1953 99 min.)
