Hi Francesca,I recenly saw a movie The Big Leaguer and your uncle played as a scout of the NY giants during spring traning in melbourne florida. Im a big baseball fan and i wonder was he a baseball fan or perhaps he was a NY yankee fan?If he didnt like baseball what sports he loved and enjoyed watching the most?

Response:   Dear Steve,
My grandfather absolutely loved baseball! Especially the Dodgers and Yankees...In fact, he enjoyed all sports.
(Basketball, football, The Olympics...)
Since he did not excel in sports, he more than made up for it with his fan support.


Go Dodgers!

Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
Edward G. Robinson was my great uncle. I am related through his mother's side of the family. I would like to know how we are distantly related. My great grandmother and edward's mother were sisters, and that is my story. I would like to know more about you and your side of the family.

Response:   Dear David,
How nice to finally hear from you. Obviously, we should contact each other and get the details. I do get many "relatives" contacting me, and in just one case, they really were related.
However, hope springs eternal and once we look into the matter we shall see!
I become a widow at a young age. I have a wonderful son who graduated California Lutheran University last weekend with a degree in Political Science.
Love to hear about your side of the family also.

Sincerely,

Francesca

Hi Francesca,
I have recently come into possession of a painting identifies as follows:
plate three
PERE TANGUY (1887,PARIS)
Coll.Edward G.Robinson,Beverly Hills,Calif.25x19.
Not being an expert on art collectibles,I wonder if this is indeed from your father's collection?

Response:   Robert,
It sounds like what you have is a re-production of the original that was part of Eddie's first art collection.
Pere Tanguy (1887 Paris) was painted
by Van Gogh and his now part of the
Stavros Niarchos collection.

Thank you for your question,

Francesca

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
