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.

There is a movie staring Edward G. Robinson made back in the 30's that still rings in my mind, I was only 9 years old when I saw it, but can't remember the title. Seemed that he had loved a woman years earlier who married someone else and they die leaving a youg daughter who comes to live with him and discovers that he had killed both of her parents by driving their carriage into an ice house or ice pond,
Can you help me?
I just assisted one of my clients Pat Welig who worked for Edward G. Robinson before he died. In talking to her, she brought movies back to mind.

Response:   Dear Rod,
I believe the film you are remembering is The Red House. (1947) Generally the reviews were excellent for the film and Eddie. It frightened me as a child because I saw him drowning.
As "LIFE" magazine commented: "1947 will probably see no film with suspense more chilling"

While I am really only a marginal fan of Mr. Robinson, I want to thank his family on behalf of my grandfather, Abe Fassman. My grandfather was with the 36th Infantry Regiment, 3AD, in Normandy and had the opportunity to see Mr. Robinson during his visit to the troops. It meant quite a lot to him. With a son currently in Iraq, it saddens me that there are so few celebrities today who are willing to put politics aside and simply extend themselves a bit to make the lives of our military personnel a bit more comfortable.

Response:   Thank you for your kind words Aaron. As you probably know Eddie was the first Hollywood figure to entertain the troops following D-Day. He believed, regardless of political position, we are all Americans. He felt it was his duty as a patriot to support those who risked all for their country.
