Today's photo features another Bob - Robert Cummings. Photo is of him & Betty Caufield from The Petty Girl (1950).
Like many of the other actors I've featured on this blog, Bob was also a pilot. He learned to fly while in high school from his godfather, Orville Wright.
Bob was another actor who also transitioned into television, having his own show appropriately titled The Bob Cummings Show (aka Love That Bob). If you haven't seen any of his films, go out and rent Dial M For Murder or Saboteur - both excellent Hitchcock films. Another recommended film, shown on TCM here and there, is The Devil and Miss Jones with Jean Arthur and Charles Coburn.
