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.

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,

Francesca

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..

Hello. First I just wanted to say that this is a terrific site. Edward G. was a truly great actor, and this site definitely does him justice. But, there are some ulterior motives with this comment..
My family believes that my great-grandma, Betty Goldenberg Miller Schneider, or Grandma B as they called her, was a cousin to Edward G. She told stories about picking him up and putting him over her knee to sew up a hole in his pants.
I'm working on a genealogy project for school(I'm a junior in high school) so any information you have about your grandfather's parents or aunts or uncles or anything at all would be helpful.
Thanks, and keep up the good work on the site.

Response:   Dear Sarah,
I know you have communicated with my staff and I have been trying to recall anything that would help you in your studies.
Having given it some thought, I could not find anything related to Grandma B.
I recommend going to the Mormon Temple geneology data base. They are a very good and rich resource.
I, however, do not have any independant knowledge or recollection of your great-grandmother but I do wish you all the best in your research.
Sarah, thank you for the kind words regarding Eddie's site.

Warm Regards,

Francesca

I am a 28 year old living in Ohio and I recently 'discovered' Mr. Robinson's films. He was a phenominal talent and entertainer. I only wish more of his films were available on the DVD format for sale. Thanks for all the great information on this site.

Response:   Dear Matthew,
I find it wonderful that young people like yourself are discovering some of our great actors and the films they starred in.
Many of the movies are on VHS and soon to be coming to DVD.
Thank you for your interest.

Francesca
