Dear Francesca-
Your grandfather was one of my favorite actors. I just finished his autobiography. He obviously held you in very high regard. Just wondering whatever happened to his fabulous art collection? It seemed his true passion in life. Acting was a means to acquire more paintings!!

Response:   Dear Tony,
The first French Impressionist collection was sold to Stavros Niarchos, the Greek shipping magnate, when my grandparents
The second collection was sold when he died in 1973 to Armand Hammer of Occidental Petroleum.
As much as he had a true passion and love
for his art, he also felt it for his chosen profession.

Thank you,

Dear Francesca,
I went to school with you when we were in 2nd or 3rd grade at Villa Cabrini Academy in Burbank, CA. I can still remember your cute little face. I believe I was a year or two older than you but we used to play together. Then one day your Grandfather, Edward G., came to pick you up from school and there was such a commotion. I didn't know who he was until years later when I watched his movies. I happened to catch a TV show on him several years ago, and there you were, all grown up and with the same married name as myself. What a coincidence, huh? Just thought I'd write to say hello. Glad to see you are healthy and happy. I am still in contact with some of the girls I went to school with all as a young child. It's nice to have contact with those who knew you so long ago. God bless and my best wishes for a Happy New Year.

Happy New Year! I also remember that day when he visited Villa Cabrini Academy.
There truly was a commotion! It took us two hours to get off campus. He lost his pen...signing autographs..but loved EVERY minute of it. Eddie was a very involved grandparent.
Patty, please get in touch with me. Glad to see that the Sanchez name has been good to you too.
I agree it is always nice to catch up with "old" friends.
For now please contact me through the customer service line:

God Bless You,

Response:   Dear Susan,
Claude Rains was also one of my favorites.
I loved him in 'Mr.Skeffington' and 'Notorious'. He was both interesting and intense, and very attractive.
Thank you for your kind words about Eddie also.

Hello Francesca. thank you for your nice phone message but my answering machine garbled the number. Please call again and don't for get to watch us in the parade on New Year's Day. Hugs from HOLLY

Response:   Hi Holly,

I will call you later with my telephone number and personal email address. Hope you, David, and the family had a wonderful Christmas holiday.

Will certainly keep an eye out for you at the Rose Bowl Parade.

Met up with Barbara Griffiths in London during late October/early November, we spent a wonderful day and evening together - and spoke about you and David (I hope your ears were burning).

Congratulations on David's Rose Bowl appointment.

I will be out of the country during the month of January, but perhaps we can get together before I leave or certainly upon my return (I'm frequently in Pasadena on business).

Love and hugs,

I was surfing the net for information regarding Romanian actors.. I already knew that your grandfather was born in Romania and left the country at 10...Have he ever came back? Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Response:   Dear Cristina,
Yes, my grandfather did go back to
Romania in the late 1960's. It was a very emotional, yet gratifying experience. He actually found his childhood home still existing.
The Romanian film industry welcomed him back with open arms, recognizing him as one of their own.
Someday it would be nice to have
an Edward G. Robinson Film Festival in Romania.. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
