Robert Cummings

Here is Robert Cummings (1908-1990), Grace Kelly's 'other man' in the gripping 1954 Hitchcock thriller Dial M For Murder. Long before the Harrison Fords and Sean Conneries, Cummings was noted for his perpetual youthfulness. He was also reckoned to be Cary Grant before Archie Leach started playing Cary Grant to perfection.


  1. I'm well aware that many admire Cary Grant, but personally I have never been able to really connect with him. I think the main reason is, like you say, that he was very much a product, the perfect actor.

  2. I like CG's films but the only part that he ever plays is Archie Leach's creation.
