Hello, Francesca:
Did your grandfather ever talk with you about McCarthyism and his own blacklisting? He sums it up so eloquently in his book, if I may quote, 'Then who or what was the enemy? Ignorance, my friends, ignorance. Insulation. Lack of eduction. Lack of knowledge of history. Fear of the unknown...'
This summation is very relevant today. Edward G. Robinson has inspired me for many years, not only with his acting, but also with his love of humankind. Thank you for sharing your insights with us.

Response:   Dear Kevin,
Yes he did, and it is something that scarred his soul. He never fully got over it. But he carried on with his life and career.
One of the blackest periods in our history.

Thank you for your question,

Francesca

Your grandfather appeared at an Oscars ceremony and read a poem 'I Will Not Go Back' and he said that the author was Walter Gruber. I have never been able to locate the poet or the text of the poem. Are you able to help me? It was a beautiful poem about mankind's unwillingness to go backward. Thank you for any help you can give me!

Response:   Dear Marie,
I believe you are thinking of his dramatic reading of Milton Geiger's "I Will Not Go Back". Eddie gave at least two public performances of this work.
The earlier performance was on "This Is Tom Jones", an ABC-television variety show, in 1970, followed by a live reading at a "Musical Americana" program in 1971 by the United States Air Force Band in Washington.
Incidentally, Geiger also wrote for the Screen Directors Playhouse on radio, adapting Night Has A Thousand Eyes and Sealtest Variety Theatre, with a drama called Sleight Of Hand.

Thank You,

Francesca

Two of my aunts worked for your Grandfather, one as a housekeeper the other as a cook in the 60's or early 70's. I do not know your age but am wondering if you remember them as they were quite the characters. Nina did the housekeeping and Olive did the cooking. Olive made an awesome pineapple up-side-down cake!
Thanks!
