Dear Mr. Robinson-Sanchez,
My question is different, in that it doesn't pertain directly to your wonderful, talented grandfather. When I was 14 (I'm now 58), I read your father's book My Father, My Son. It made a deep impression on me then, and recently I was able to find another copy. I admire your grandparents' loving efforts to help their son, but realize that circumstances made a 'normal' upbringing very difficult. I also admire your dad's determination despite many setbacks, and am wondering if he was able to enjoy the success in films that he so dearly craved. I understand he died young, but hope that after he wrote his book he was able to find some measure of peace in his life. Thanks for any memories you care to share, but I will understand if this is something you'd prefer not to discuss.
In the meantime, I look forward to finding more of your grandfather's films. Just the other day our national broadcaster, the CBC, showed Flesh and Fantasy.
Sincerely, Martha Fraser

Thank you for the kind words concerning my father and grandparents. As Shakespeare said: "Pain pays the income of every precious thing."

Sincerely,

Francesca

Hi,
Just wanted to tell you how much I like your site. My favorite films of your Grandfather's is NIGHT HAS A THOUSAND EYES and THE STRANGER, as well as the comedy TALK OF THE TOWN?/THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING(?) where his meek shop clerk bears a big resemblence to public enemy #1. Whenever actors today complain about being typecast, I get very annoyed. Only BAD actors get typecast!

Response:   Dear Dave,
Eddie's versatility is well known.
Since you mentioned "The Stranger", Orson Welles, his co-star, said: "I think Robinson is the one of the best movie actors of all time."
And Julie's site is a wonderful meeting place for his fans.

Thank you,

Francesca

Dear Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
I want to thank you for having a q and a as part of themave.com's website. When I was in high school I started developing an interest in classic hollywood actors. I had always associated your grandfather with 'little ceasar' and those sort of movies but while i was wandering through a store one day i picked up a vhs copy of Thunder in the City (1937). i was totally surprised that he could do something besides drama/crime. Although Thunder in the city was alright i have since seen Edward G in some better comedies like 'A hole in the head' which i really liked! I also recently learned that your grandfather was more cultured in his private life and I wondered if there was any particular artist that he favoured? and also was there any sort of food that he really enjoyed?

Response:   Dear Rachel,
Eddie loved all art, but particularly the French Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. His two great art collections were world renowned.
Few had his eye and many experts commented on his rare talent for discovering new artists. He considered his paintings as his friends and they never disappointed him.
As far as his palate, he enjoyed fine food and would wax nostalgic for some of his mother's delicious Romanian dishes.
