The younger brother of singer Dick Haymes, Bob Haymes was vocalist for both Carl Hoff and Bob Chester before embarking on a successful career as a songwriter. Haymes also appeared in several Hollywood films during the 1940s. In three of those films he used the stage name Robert Stanton, a fact that often causes confusion in his filmography, as actor Kirby Grant had previously used the same moniker. Haymes also hosted several early television programs: Cavalcade of Sports in 1944, Campus Hoopla in 1946 and 1947, Television Screen Magazine in 1948, Village Barn in 1949, and Around the Town in 1950. In 1952 he starred in a comedy series called It's a Business, which featured the antics of two songwriters and their secretary. Bob Haymes passed away in 1989.
