Dear Ms.Robinson, I am very impressed with this site, and really enjoy reading the comments and answers concerning your grandfather.
My mother is 75 and told me she also saw a movie in the early 1970's,similar to Pat Kane's question. She was talking about this movie right before I read Pat's question, so I anxiously awaited the answer. She doesn't recall many details, but said she thought the movie had a lot of the Christmas season in it. She thinks it was actually made in the 70's. She said EGR was looking through a window, but doesn't remember at what part of the movie this was.
I've tried to figure out which one it could be by reading comments from viewers, but without actually seeing each movie I just can't figure it out. Could it be a movie that was only shown the one time in the 70's? I had hoped to purchase it for my mom for Christmas.
Thanks much, Deborah Knauff

Response:   (Webmistress, here): This movie is sounding like a combination of "Sullivan's Travels" and "Stella Dallas"! (just kidding). Seriously, if you go to the Internet Movie Database you can look up EGR and read through the details/synopses of all of his films, and perhaps something will ring a bell.

Dear Francesca,
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer genealogy questions. Your reply relating to your great-grandmother and great uncles confirms that your grandfather was not a first cousin of my husband's family. However, he was probably more distant cousin as the families in New York and London were sure that he was a cousin.

Response:   Dear Sue,
I am heartened that so many people have a deep and passionate longing to discover their familial roots.

I am glad to help wherever I can.

Warm Regards,

Re Pat Kane's question about the film about a character looking in the window of his home at Christmas: The film's plotline is evocative of THE LAST GANGSTER, wherein he goes inside the house at the end and talks with his former wife and her new husband (James Stewart) before he's bumped off by a rival gangster. But I don't believe it's the right film. It's obviously not THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW (or 'the lady'), either, whose story doesn't match. Sorry.

Re: 02 November 2005 message...
Dear Francesca , Yes, Max smoked cigars and I remember the smelling salts he had to use for me because I was such a chicken! Have you ever been to Brooklyn? I grew up in the Williamsburg section. I am not there anymore, but I'm not too far away. I would also like to say thank you so much for giving us all the opportunity to write to you. I have always thought of Max and wondered if he had family. Best Regards, Mary L.

Response:   Dear Mary,
I have been to Brooklyn a couple of times-
Brooklyn Heights, The River Cafe and the famous restaurant Peter Luger's Steakhouse for dinner Wonderful.
Max had one son- Dr. Marvin Robinson, who was a dentist. Over the years, people have approached me with nice stories concerning Marvin and Max.
Unfortunately, Marvin passed away a few years ago. He has two wonderful children, June and Peter.

It was truly kind of you to write.

Warm Regards,

Anybody know? I saw a film , maybe 30 years ago, which I'm convinced starred Edward G. A scene near the end shows the character looking into his (once )family home through the house window. It's Christmas and snowing. His family think he's dead long ago as he grappled with a hobo who stole his watch and the hobo was killed by a train. The only ID recovered was the watch which pointed to Edward G's death.As he had committed fraud it suited him to disappear. I don't think it's The lady in the Window.
Best regards, Pat Kane

Response:   Dear Pat,
This is a perfect question for our resident expert - Robert Beck, author of the Edward G. Robinson Encyclopedia.
Bob, are you out there?
For the moment, I am stumped.
Or if anybody else out there knows, please chime in..
