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

Did Edward G. Robinson ever appear in a film with Jimmy Stewart? If so, what was their relationship like..given the difference in their political outlook?
03 May 2005 - san francisco, calif

Response:   Dear Remy,
They did two films together:
The Last Gangster (1937)
Cheyenne Autumn (1964)
They were good friends.
Regarding politics, during the blacklisting period both
condemned what they perceived as broad- brush indictments against innocent people.

Thank you for your question,

Francesca

Hi Francesca,
I'm so happy to see this great site dedicated to your wonderful, talented grandfather.
I remember you from Marymount when we were both students there, although I was 3 years behind you so you probably don't remember me. You brought your grandfather to the Father-Daughter Dance and he was so gracious to everyone who wanted to me him, especially me dad. I can see why you are so proud of him and love him so.
I just saw 'A Hole in the Head' again and I have to say your grandfather was hilarious as Sinatra's long-suffering brother. He could play any role. Just compare the comedian in 'Hole' to the thug he played in 'Key Largo.' A great actor.
Did you ever get to hear him do his Yiddish version of 'Minnie the Moocher'? I read how funny it was in Lauren Bacall's autobiography.
I hope you got to keep some of his great art he had collected over the years. But even if you didn't, you've got your memories, most precious of all.
Congratulations and blessings to you!

Response:   It's great to hear from you Teri!
I've heard Eddie speak Yiddish many times, but did not have the pleasure of hearing the Yiddish version of 'Minnie the Moocher'. It must have been hilarious...
The last art collection was sold (upon his death) to Armand Hammer (Occidental Petroleum). But, of course, it is the memories that one treasures most of all.
How nice of you to remember the Father-Daughter dance..Eddie and I had a great time that night.. It sounds like you did too.
Please stay in touch,

Fondly,

Francesca
