Response:   Dear Greg,

Billy Wilder....and many others. Eddie respected professionalism. And both he and Billy had their love of art in common.

Best Regards,

Francesca

Dear Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
I think your website is a wonderful tribute to your grandfather. Your grandfather was one of my all-time favorite actors since I was a kid growing up in the 60's seeing his movies on TV - now on TCM and DVD. I was in college in NYC when your grandfather passed away and read All My Yesterdays, which I have recently re-read as a 52 yr old. It is a truly a wonderful autobiography which brings out your grandfather's warmth, manner of speaking, devotion to family, country, humanity and his work. When I first read it in my 20's, his life story inspired me to work hard, stay focused. It also inspired a life-long interest in art and classical music. Do you still have your grandfather's Steinway Ampico reproducing piano? - recently heard a restored one - they are truly magnificent instruments and very rare today. Best wishes,
Tom Turrin

Response:   Dear Tom,

What a wonderful and inspiring letter! Eddie's legacy lives on through the people he has touched...like you.
His standards were high but his ability to inspire others to reach for those standards is part of his gift to all of us. Your letter is testimony of this.

Per his wishes, The Steinway was left to UCLA.
What a wonderful instrument!
Steve Allen was the last to play it at the Stamp Commemoration for Eddie in 2000.
Eddie was the Sixth Legend Of Hollywood to be honored by the US Postal Service. (One week later Steve Allen was tragically taken from us.)
He played "Our Love Is Here To Stay" by George Gershwin, who was one of Eddie's best friends.)

Thank you for your kind words,

Warmly,

Francesca

This may not be for your site, but it seems the best way to contact you.
I am writing a biography of the sculptor, Anna Mahler. Your father and grandfather both knew her, as shown in Anna's diary and Hollywood biographies, which mention both their names at parties etc. Anna came to know your father after his book was written, and so she is not mentioned. However, I was wondering if he kept a diary, which might mention her, or whether you have any knowledge which can contribute to my research for the biography. I would be most grateful to hear from you.
Sincerely, Greg

Response:   Dear Dr. Hurworth,

Yes, I do have some interesting stories of Anna Mahler and my father. They lived a few doors apart and I did meet her on several occasions.
She was a great sculptress! She also was good friends with Julie Andrews. She actually did a sculpture of Julie and Julie did own several of her artworks. Anna also did the Otto Klemperer sculture that stands in the lobby of the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion (The Music Center) in Los Angeles, Calif.
I would like to give you some more information and will contact you soon.

Incidentally, I have some great original silver gelatin photos from famed photographer Sanford Roth of Anna sculpting in her garden(studio).
Coincidentally, her name has come up several times in the last few months.

For the other readers who might not be aware, Anna's father was the great German composer Gustav Mahler.

Kind Regards,

Francesca

Dear Francesca,
I was wondering if Max's son also practiced dentistry in Brooklyn? Did Max have any other children? Also, in the first photo (1972 from the photo album), Eddie reminds me of Max. I really like that photo of you and your grandfather.
Thank you and have a Happy New Year.
Regards,

Response:   Dear Mary,

Please see your earlier question. We have answered it. (The Goldenberg brothers did have a strong resemblance)
Thank you for sweet comment concerning the photograph.

Warm Regards and a Happy Belated New Year!

Francesca
