Being a theater student for a year now i was looking at the TMC movies and your grandpa really inspired me. Why because he has this look that comes alive with the feeling of the character he played. My father and mother left me when i was ten years old. When im asked to play father less roles, my instructor director picks me for the parts cause of the feeling she says that come alive and the feelings and tears are real. What was real about the experience that your grandpa went through? Hope not to impose, ill respect if you tell me to back off. I understand about being alone in this world. Well i hope i hear from you. Im sending my wifes address ill makes mine this week. Thanks for your time.

Response:   Thank you for your question. Every true artist conveys his life experience to his audience.. It may come out in the laughter.. in the tears, or in something as mundane as boredom..But it is there. And it is real. This is why art has such great capacity to heal.
The artist and the audience..It tells him and them that they are not alone.
Eddie had much pain in his life..
He faced anti-Semitism prior to immigrating to America. He met face to face with the blacklist. But as any true artist will tell you...you cannot turn away from this pain..just channel it through your art. This is what will cause healing...and great art..

Never give up.

Friends of mine claim that Eddie won an Academy Award. I always thought that he had not. Who is right?
06 June 2005 - Toledo, Ohio

Response:   You are right in that Eddie never won an Oscar for any of his work on screen..
BUT, he was the second to receive the Honorary Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences..
(The first one went to a chap named Chaplin...) Eddie's Oscar read " To Edward G. Robinson, who achieved greatness as a player, a patron of the arts,and a dedicated citizen...in sum, a Renaissance man. From his friends in the industry he loves".
He was bestowed this award on March 27,1973. He had died a few weeks earlier
but was aware of the wonderful honor.

What did Edward G. think of Yul Brynner as an actor, and did they get along socially? I think both had an incredibly commanding presence on screen!

Response:   Both were dynamic on screen and had great presence.. Powerful actors! As far as I know, they got along well off screen..and respected each other.

I am a big fan of your grandfather's amazing talent in acting.I was wondering if you could help me find the movie he was in called BLACK TUESDAY.Thank you.
04 June 2005 - Wabash,Indiana

Response:   I knew the writer of Black Tuesday,(1954) Sydney
Boehm- a close personal friend of Eddie's and mine..He played gin rummy with my grandfather. He also wrote "Seven Thieves", (1960) which my grandfather starred in. The webmistress would be a good source for locating the film..Good luck.

Thank you for your question..

Francesca
