The Bob Cummings Show
A hit television series by all accounts, The Bob Cummings Show, re-titled for syndication as Love That Bob, highlights the romantic misadventures of Bob Collins (Robert Cummings), a suave bachelor and photographer who can't seem to shake his model-chasing ways-much to the amusement of gal pal Schultzy (Ann B. Davis) and disapproval of widowed sister Margaret (Rosemary DeCamp).
Love That Bob was the daytime-rerun and syndication title bestowed upon the long-running situation comedy The Bob Cummings Show. Debuting January 2, 1955, on NBC, the series starred the ageless Bob Cummings as Bob Collins, a swinging bachelor and successful professional photographer. Bob considered the day wasted that he didn't try to make a romantic conquest, usually by dating one of his "harem" of gorgeous models, among them Shirley Swanson (Joi Lansing), Mary Beth Hall (Gloria Marshall), Collette DuBois (Lisa Gaye), and real-life Miss Sweden, Ingrid Goude.
It is a panorama of what radio was like in its prime-featuring the unique comedy of Easy Aces, Bob and Ray, and dramatic shows starring Charles Boyer, Robert Cummings, and Rosalind Russell. Two innovative plays written by radio poet laureate, Norman Corwin are included, as well as domestic comedy with Mr. & Mrs. Blandings, starring Cary Grant and Betsy Drake.
