Dear Francesca,
Having grown up in Los Angeles, I often wonder where some of the grand old stars hung out on their 'off' days.
What were some of Eddie's frequent haunts? Did he have many? Did he love Los Angeles? (Since many actors are sometimes nostalgic for New York..)
Thanks,
Ben

Response:   Dear Ben,
He loved both New York AND Los Angeles..
When he wasn't working he liked having lunch at the Hillcrest Country Club in West Los Angeles (where he was one of the original founding members-and played a mean game of gin rummy. Take that Cinncinati Kid!)) and Nate and Al's in Beverly Hills. He enjoyed attending classical music concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion. Theatre was always on the agenda - from downtown to Century City. He also loved to drive out and visit my father in Malibu.
And of course, the museum and art gallery visits throughout Southern California.

He Loved LA!

Francesca

My mother, an artist, sold your grandfather a painting called 'The mommy Tree' many, MANY years ago. Now I am a mother, and my mother, bless her heart, can't paint anymore....and I would give anything for that painting. Her name is Jeanne Cancelleri. Any idea where I may find it? The woman in the painting has a long neck, and its quite different. Very Sincerely, Jodie

Response:   Dear Jodie,
What a great story...Unfortunately, he had very many paintings..Some were sold, some were left to others...I have no idea, I am sorry...Please give my best to your mother.

Did Edward G. Robinson enjoy his role in The Ten Commandments? How did he prepare for it? Did he like the end result?
09 May 2005 - Santa Barbara, Calif.

Response:   Dear Bill,
The significance of the Ten Commandments was the fact that Cecil B. DeMille helped Eddie restore his star status by giving him his first major role after the blacklist. Cecil, a strong conservative, stated: "I've had you checked out, and you are as clean as a hound's-tooth".
Eddie did enjoy playing the role of Dathan. I don't know how he prepared for the role..I was a little girl at the time. I do know that he was pleased for more reasons than one..


Sincerely,

Francesca
