I believe I have a car that was originally owned by your grandfather. It is a '66 Cadillac Eldorado conv. It is green with a tan roof and brown interior. Do you remember this car?

Response:   Dear Mr. Frank,
Yes, I do. It was one of my favorite cars to drive in. My grandfather bought the car for my step-grandmother Jane.
You have some history there..Great car.
I used to love driving in it with the convertible top down..

Francesca.

Eddie is what we think of when we think of 'Motion Pictures' and 'Hollywood.' Look up the word 'star' in your dictionary and there is his picture. He was one of our greatest Hollywood actors and will live forever in his movies. A true 'World Treasure.' What amazes me was he embraced many genres besides the 'tough guy' roles he was known for. It was fascinating to know he was the original Dr. Zaius for the test reel for 'Planet of the Apes' which was pitched to 20th Century Fox. And his portrayal as 'Sol' in the science fiction film Soylent Green was just wonderful. His scenes reminiscing over the old days were brilliant. When he and Heston feasted over priceless beef and bourbon in the movie, the look on his face as he savored every morsel was just magic. Not a word was spoken during that scene--but it was fascinating to see his expressions. So, how did Eddie feel about these roles and working with Charlton Heston in several movies. They had a chemistry that was just marvelous.

Response:   Dear Jim,
You are so intuitive. They had wonderful chemistry on and off the screen. Charleton Heston is a good person who has been a great friend to Eddie and our family throughout the years. He and Eddie gave us magic on the screen...that will continue to mezmorize audiences for years to come..

Thank You,

Francesca

Dear Francesca,
It was such a wonderful surprise this morning went I went online looking for information regarding Villa Cabrinis reunion, and I saw your website. So very often through the years my thoughts have been of our time on campus there and when you came to be a student. My sister Cynthia has been keeping in touch with some alumni(she was a few years behind us). I am still residing in the Los Angeles area and have 3 grown children, and two granchildren.
Your web site is very well done. But I want you to contact me so we can catch up. I am going to give you a number to contact me (8185547786). I am hoping to hear from you.I remember my years at Villa very fondly because of all the wonderful girls I met (Sami Arnella Colleen Donna Jewell Vicki S. And on and on). Sincerely, Debbie

Response:   Dear Debbie,
It was wonderful to see you!
Adam and I had a great time.
36 years without missing a beat.
We are looking forward to the Villa Cabrini Reunion this weekend.
It should be a blast!

Love,

Francesca

Hello Francesca
I was strolling around the internet searching for some information on the great
Eddie G. when I stumbled onto your wonderful tribute to your grandfather. Its
about time he was honored with a decent
website.
I'm working on a list that I call
The Edward G. Robinson Tour, which is a list of notable places throughout his life and was wondering if you could answer several questions for me.
What was the address of the Arden Drive house?
After he and Gladys split up and he kept the Rexford Drive house, where did she
move to?
What was Manny's Malibu address?
And is Gladys buried near Manny?
Would you like a copy of the list when I
finish it for either your site or for yourself? I'd be glad to e - mail it to you or add it to this message board.
Thanks and take care.
Eddie G was the greatest.

Response:   Dear Bob,
Your research is impressive. We generally refrain from divulging specific addresses in order to maintain the privacy of present occupants.
However, we can tell you that Gladys was cremated and her ashes were strewn off the coast of Santa Barbara, Calif. as per her wishes...
My father is buried at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary right next to my mother...
Thank you for your work and we would love to see the result of your efforts.

Sincerely,

Francesca

PS. Yes, he was!

Greetings. I had the pleasure of visiting at 910 North Rexford Drive about fifteen years ago, where Edward G.'s self-portrait and 'The Dead Tree' ('L'Arbre Mort') still hung on the walls. After Eddie died, Jane married George. After she died, George married Corinne. What happened to the house after that? (Not to be facetious...did Corinne remarry!?) 910 was a magnificent home in Beverly Hills, and I am curious about it and the Robinson estate.
Incidentally, credit Sidney Boehm also with the screenplay for HELL ON FRISCO BAY.
Hope you're all doing well.

Response:   Dear Bob,
George and Corinne Sidney sold the house in 1999. I do not know who presently owns the home. Grandpa bought it in 1933 and lived there til he died.
The latest owner has made major changes in it's appearance.
Bob, thanks for clarifying the credit, also...

I will call you soon,

Francesca
