RIP James Mitchell

James Mitchell was an American actor and dancer, who will be remembered chiefly as Palmer Cortlandt on All My Children. However, he was also a prominent figure in musical theatre dance history, working with Agnes de Mille many times during the 1940s and 1950s as well as with greats like Jerome Robbins, Eugene Loring and Gower Champion during his career.

Rest in Peace.
