The Bob Cummings Show

(1955-59) Aka. "Love That Bob." Cast: Bob Cummings, Ann Davis, Dwayne Hickman, Rosemary DeCamp. Cummings plays Bob Collins, a hot photographer we're supposed to believe is a freewheeling playboy, living in squeaky clean 1950s Hollywood. Bob's business consists almost exclusively of shooting glamour girls, who Bob pursues with a singleness of purpose.

Episodes are available in Mpeg2 or Mpeg4 digital files.
