Love That Show!, 24 March 2005
Author: dencar_1 from United States

This is simply one of TV's all-time funniest sitcoms. Bob Cummings may have done well in DIAL M FOR MURDER and many leading man roles throughout his career, but THE BOB CUMMINGS SHOW (also known as LOVE THAT BOB) proves his forte was decidedly comedy.

Cummings is a gem as the playboy Beverly Hills photographer with a bevy of models and beauties swarming in, over, and through his photographic studio. Yet he always seems to be foiled whenever he tries to nail one of them down for lovemaking. Ann B. Davis (later the housekeeper in THE BRADY BUNCH)is his hilarious secretary secretly pining for Bob who nixes his love schemes one way or another whenever she has a chance. And Dwayne Hickman (later DOBBIE GILLIS) is great as the hormone-driven teenager vying for a piece of his Uncle Bob's action. The only sensible one in the group is Rosemary DeCamp, Bob's sister, with whom he lives, who does her best to raise Hickman with some degree of morality in the midst of her brother's sexploitations.

Nancy Kulp simply must be mentioned. Though she later skyrocketed in THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES, she is a riot as the birdwatching, nerdy Pamela Livingstone, the bean-pole with a crush on Bob. She popped up in many episodes throughout the series and it was always hilarious to watch Cummings jump through hoops to escape her romantic advances.

If you have never seen THE BOB CUMMINGS SHOW, you simply must. It won't disappoint in the laugh department. And it's fun to watch if you'd like to see the kind of wholesome sex farce TV could produce in the late 1950's that was neither explicit nor offensive.

Trivia: Nancy Kulp spent her life savings running for political office in Pennsylvania in the '90's...Rosemary DeCamp played the wife of Georeg M. Cohan (James Cagney) in the movie YANKEE DOODLE DANDY in the 1940's...Darrell Hickman is the brother of Dwayne Hickman, who made several teen beach movies in the early 1960's...Bob Cummings was very much into healthy living, eating, and exercising which is probably why he looked 35 when he was 60...King Donovan, one of Bob's friends who shows up intermittently throughout the series, appeared in the cult classic INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS with Kevin McCarthy in the early '50's...Joy Lansing, one of the bevy of beauties who frequented Bob's studio had been a major model and did quite a lot of television...
