Robert Cummings (also known as Bob Cummings) was an actor from the 1930s to the 1980s. He was born Charles Clarence Robert Orville Cummings in Joplin, Missouri in 1910, and he went to drama school and went to New York and passed himself off as a British actor named Blade Stanhope Conway! Amazingly, that worked, and then he went to Hollywood, where he thought they wouldn't want a British actor, so he became Texan Bruce Hutchens! After having a number of small parts in 1935 and 1936, he reverted to his real name, and became a popular comedic actor in the 1930s and 1940s (although he was very memorable in two Alfred Hitchcock movies, "Dial M For Murder" and "Saboteur"), and he is likely best remembered for starring in the extremely popular "The Bob Cummings Show" TV series of the 1950s and 1960s. He was well known for his extremely youthful appearance, which he attributed to eating healthy food and a lot of vitamin supplements. He passed away in 1990 at the age of 80, having had five wives and seven children!
