Did Eddie ever perform in Vegas?
Did he know the rat pack?
30 May 2005 - Bakersfield, Calif.

Response:   Last question first:
He knew ALL of them. He and Frank Sinatra
were very close. They did a wonderful Capra comedy together: "A Hole in the Head" (1959) They also shared the same birthday- Dec 12th. (albeit different years)
I don't think he ever performed on stage in Las Vegas, but enjoyed going there to see his friends and to gamble.

Did Edward G. Robinson study with a poker master for the Cincinnati Kid?
How did he like Steve McQueen?
30 May 2005 - San Diego, Calif.

Response:   Dear Randall,
He liked Steve very much. They got along famously. Both fed of each other's wonderful acting.
Eddie loved playing cards. The Cincinnati Kid was one of his favorite films: " The man on screen, more than any other picture I ever made, was Edward G. Robinson with great patches of Emanuel Goldenberg showing through".
The Cincinnati Kid was recently voted the favorite poker movie by an online survey of 5000 gamblers. It was also just released (this week) as a DVD and the climactic scene is featured in the upcoming documentary on Steve McQueen entitled "The Essence of Cool" (Turner Classic Movies- showing on June 1st)
One last point on the film:
Variety stated: "...may well be the most suspenseful account of a poker game in film record".

Thanks for your question,

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)
John Huston co-wrote the screenplay with
John Wexley.
And we found all this pertinant information in YOUR book...

Thank you,
