Hello
I've put together a list of places where
Mr. Robinson lived at throughout his life
and thought that his fans, friends and family might be interested in it. It is by
no means complete, and if anyone has something new to add, please do so.
I hope everyone enjoys it.
Thank you
Bob S.

I really have grown to love the non gangster roles ive seen done by your grandfather, in particular an episode of night gallery, I enjoy drawing and art myself, and while i know your grandpa was jewish..it struck me that in dr ehrlichs magic bullet..that there is something about his face and eyes as an older fellow..that inspired a drawing of Santa Claus! of all his roles which is most like EGR?

Response:   Dear Connie,
Interesting that you mention Dr. Ehrlich's Magic Bullet...It was his favorite film..The Cincinnati Kid was the one that he said most resembled him.
We do have a picture of Eddie dressed up as St. Nick....with a cigar.
Ho Ho Ho!
