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

Hi. Re: Jim Sheedy's question: That quote in the short EGR tribute that airs on TCM is: 'Every one of us bears within him the possibility of all passions, all destinies of life in all its manifold forms. Nothing human is foreign to us.'

On Sunday there was an amazing short piece about Edward G on TV in between a couple of Bogie movies. It was a wonderful tribute.
In that tribute they showed a quote which I believe was attributed to Edward G. I am trying to obtain the quote (I was not quick enough to get it from the TV).
The quote was something like: There is soemthing deep inside of us, and within our depths we ahve at our disposal every passion and...that is the core of humanity.
Could you PLEASE help me to find this exact quote? I would like to include it in a book I am writing and would be proud to quote Edward G Robinson.
Sincerely

Hi Francesca,
My great uncle (Jim Jennings) from New Zealand,Was a good friend of your grandfather's in the 30's and 40's.
I was wondering if any of your family remember him. Regards Warren Sturrock

Response:   Dear Warren,
Let me look into your great uncle's name.
Maybe I will discover some great stories. New Zealand? Doesn't the internet make the world smaller? Wonderful.

Sincerely,

Francesca
