Among the other popular plays that he directed were Happy Birthday (1945), John Loves Mary (1946), Picnic (1953), Fanny (1954), and The World of Suzie Wong (1958). Logan directed the highly acclaimed motion-picture version of South Pacific (1958) as well as several other popular films, among them Bus Stop (1956), Sayonara (1957), Fanny (1961), Camelot (1967), and Paint Your Wagon (1969).
