Constance, Maureen and Bob - All May Babies

Constance Cummings was Bob's leading lady in The Haunted Honeymoon (1940).  Born in Seattle May 15, 1910, Constance began her Broadway career as a chorus girl and went on to become a Commander of the British Empire in 1974 and a Tony winner in 1979, and continued to act on the stage into the mid-1990s.  Please checkout her extensive and interesting obituary on Alt Film Guide

Maureen O'Sullivan was born May 17, 1911, in Ireland and died in Scottsdale, AZ at the age of 87, a mother of six (her first child Michael died in 1958), grandmother to 32 and great grandmother to 14.  In between, she managed to become a successful actress and made one movie with Bob, Hide-Out in 1934.  Wish they had made more, they were so good together.  Check out her website for many photos of the beautiful actress and her family.  The site has a wonderful photo of Maureen and Bob on the set of Hide-Out.  It's almost as good as this one:

Bob's birthday is next week.  He'll get his own post...duh.

Thanks for the Constance link! Many, many great photos that I've never seen before including the "Hide-Out" one.

Robert - isn't it great to discover "new" photos of our favorite stars?! The sad part is realizing there is so much out there we'll never see. Ah, but the quest is fun in itself.
