Dear Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
Thank you so much for the honor of allowing me to post and to ask questions on this board. I have enjoyed E.G. Robinson and his films for years. I remember watching him in the Cincinatti Kid - That made me want to be 'the man' as a worldclass poker player! I remember watching A BOY TEN FEET TALL, also, which made me wish that I could go on Safari with your wonderful grandfather. He was the kind of man that I always wished I had for a father/grandfather. And when I watch SOYLENT GREEN, well who can keep from tears when he dies in the movie knowing he died 2 weeks after the film was finished. He was such a great actor, definately one-of-a-kind! The world is lesser for his loss but at least he have a lifetime of his movies to remember him by, and we have you to tell us memories we are yet to have. Can I ask - in what film did your grandfather seem most 'just like himself'? Also, did he die peacefully? He was such a gentleman in life he deserved a peaceful passing. Thank you for your time and thanks again for creating this wonderful tribute to THE GREAT EDWARD G. ROBINSON!

Response:   Dear Kevin,
Eddie has said many times that the Cincinnati Kid character -Lancey Howard, most resembled him off-screen.
Also, the character of Doctor Ehrlich in Doctor Erlich's Magic Bullet. (His favorite 'early period' film due to it's humanistic and intellectual outlook)

He passed as peacefully as one could expect of someone who suffered through the trauma of cancer.
By the way, Kevin, The Boy Ten Feet Tall
was also one of my favorite films.
Upon returning home from Africa, Eddie regaled me with wonderful stories..

Your comments reveal a sensitive insight and are greatly appreciated.
Letters like yours are the reason I enjoy sharing memories of my grandfather...

Gratefully,

Francesca

Congratulations on a wonderful tribute to your grandfather and a treasure trove of information for his fans. I've seen most of Mr. Robinson's movies and have just finished seeing an often overlooked one: 'A Boy Ten Feet Tall' or 'Sammy Going South.' What a great performance! He could play any role.

Response:   Dear John,
Please take a glance at the above letter from Kevin. You both have good taste!

Thank You,

Dear Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
I am in the middle of reading your grandfather's ALL MY YESTERDAYS and I could not wait to express to you how much I am enjoying the experience. There are but a handful of autobiographies that have left me with the feeling that I have actually met and, not only listened to but in a strange and unexplainable way, talked with the author.
As a aging student of theatre who has marveled at Mr. Robinson's performances on film, it is wonderful to read of his theatre roots.
I am finding so much personal relevancy in his obsevations and related experiences and I just wanted to express my appreciation for him to you. I envy all who knew him or saw him onstage live.
My best to you and yours,
DJ Lee

Response:   Dear Mr. Lee,
What wonderful words! Eddie's talent doesn't diminish with time..Great art transcends it and his love of the
theatre was one of passion.
Eddie was a member of the famous Theatre Guild in New York City.
He turned down Irving Thalberg and an MGM contract (an enormous amount of money) in order to continue acting on stage. When his last play did not draw an audience, he proclaimed: "I have been true to the Theatre, but who has been true to me?"
Shortly after that, he was offered a contract by Hal Wallis at Warner Brothers. And the film that followed was titled: "Little Caesar."

My best to you and yours,

Francesca

Dear Francesca
In regards to all the movies in which Ed played the role of a gangster, do you know which was his favourite?

Response:   Dear Kevin,
Interesting question. He never expressed to me a favorite gangster performance.
One day we were watching "Little Caesar" together and he commented that he would 'now' have played Rico differently.
He always considered "Little Caesar" as a Greek Tragedy.
