Bob's Best!
22 January 2010 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

Robert Cummings was one of the first 'Big Screen' stars to venture into television, his first SitCom, 'My Hero', was his best! Several other screen stars have played the handsome, well meaning, but bumbling character, Cary Grant, Fred MacMurray to name two, but none did it better than Robert Cummings, and never better than in 'My Hero', for some reason it only ran for 33 episodes, but what gems of comedy they are, and although a few of them are available on DVD, they are usually not very good in the picture quality department, if the originals are still in existence, someone should put the entire series out in a good quality boxed set! This series deserves it! Not long after this series, Robert Cummings for some inexplicit reason changed his billing to Bob Cummings, and for some reason, to me, was never quite as funny again? Maybe it's just me? But if you want to see Robert Cummings at his funniest, check out 'My Hero'!
