I just read on here that Manny had an affair with Marilyn Monroe, Francesca I was wondering when it happened and were they good friends afterwards?

Response:   Dear Eddie,
My father, Manny and Marilyn were good friends and did two films together: "Bus Stop" and "Some Like It Hot"
She also visited my grandfather's home many times for parties.

Hello to Francesca, and to Adam, the new grad! I hope you're both doing well. What a lot of fun it must be to field so many questions about Edward G... I'll answer the 'stumper' about Bogart I posed in March: there were five Warner Bros. films, BULLETS OR BALLOTS (1936) through KEY LARGO (1948), an Ed Sullivan appearance (tv, 1956, saluting John Huston), radio (adaptations of two film scripts plus two specials in the '40's, HOLLYWOOD FIGHTS BACK (against the HUAC), I think, and one campaigning to reelect Mr. Roosevelt). That would be TEN 'official' appearances, but since Robinson and Bogart were fairly aligned politically, I don't doubt they shared rallies and other public functions. Anyone have other evidence? --Bob Beck

Response:   Dear Bob,
Thanks for the kind words for Adam.
We are really proud of him. He received his B.A. in Political Science from California Lutheran University.
Some more "evidence" on Bogie and Eddie:
They acted together in the film-
'The Amazing Doctor Clitterhouse' (1938)..And the radio version: (1941)
(1944)
John Huston co-wrote the screenplay with
John Wexley.
And we found all this pertinant information in YOUR book...

Thank you,

Francesca

What did Edward G. Robinson think of 'method' acting? Did he respect Lee Strasberg's Actor's Studio?
23 May 2005 - Hollywood, Calif.

Response:   Dear Mike,
Eddie was a "classically" trained actor who studied on scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
Lee Strasberg acted with my grandfather in the "The Chief Thing" for the Theatre Guild in 1931.
Eddie also liked and respected Stella Adler and Sandy Meisner.

Did Edward G. Robinson have a favorite movie? (Outside of his own)
Did he go and see movies often?
Sue

Response:   Dear Sue,
He had many movies he enjoyed.
Especially, any film with Sir Lawrence Olivier..
"Othello" with Sir Lawrence and Dame Maggie Smith immediately comes to mind.
Also, "A Thousand Clowns" with Jason Robards. Another that I recall was:
"I Never Sang For My Father" with Melvyn Douglas and Gene Hackman.

These were some that he mentioned to me, personally. I'm sure there were many more throughout his life.
