Amiable leading man who hit his peak in the early 1940s. Perennially youthful, Cummings started his film career in light comedies but proved his dramatic talents in the two Hitchcock films in which he starred: as the naive, innocent aircraft worker in "Saboteur" (1942) and "Dial M For Murder" (1954) as well as Sam Wood's "King's Row" (1942) and Martin Gabel's "The Lost Moment" (1947).
Although he appeared in dramatic roles in many of the anthology series of early TV and won an Emmy for his starring performance in Reginald Rose's drama "12 Angry Men" (1954), Cummings was best known as the playboy photographer in his popular series "The Bob Cummings Show" (aka "Love That Bob," 1955-59).
