I am trying to contact someone from the estate of Edward G. Robinson regarding a painting by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy owned by Mr. Robinson. Moholy-Nagy was a Hungarian born artist of the avant garde in the 1920's. I understand that Mr. Robinson was an avid collector of art. Please feel free to visit the official Moholy-Nagy estate website at: www.moholy-nagy.com
We at the estate would love to know about the condition and location of this painting.
Sincerely, Daniel Hug

Response:   Dear Mr. Hug,
I am familiar with Lazlo Maholy-Nagy
and am not sure if my grandfather owned one of his artworks.
However, I will do some research and get back with you.
Thank you for your inquiry.

Response:   Dear Peter,
The movie you are referring to was
renamed "A Boy Ten Feet Tall". You might try Robert's hard-to-find videos at robertsvideos.com

Good luck,

Francesca

Dear Francesca,
I read your grandfather's autobiography 'All My Yesterdays' about 3 years ago and could not put it down. It is the best written celebrity autobiography I've ever read (and I've read them all!). I came away from the book not only impressed with your grandfather's talent as an actor but also impressed with what an extraordinary human being he was. Eddie's warmth and generosity came through on every page.
It was obvious from the book that you were the center of his universe and that he adored you. I wondered how you were after reading the book and I am so happy you have presented this great web site. The Ravin Maven is the best classic movie site on the internet and you could not have partnered with anyone better for this project.
I agree with a previous post. Someday I hope you write about your grandfather.
Thank you,
Dina-Marie

Response:   Dear Dina Marie,
You are right! And he was quite a taskmaster, may I add...My homework had to be done and on time! Not only did he love his family, he also had deep compassion for humanity. And he stood up for what he believed in.
Grandpa was probably the biggest influence in my life. And a hard act to follow...
I've been approached many times about doing a book, someday I will...

Sincerely,

Francesca

I am extremely impressed by this website and all of its functionality. I never imagined that Mr. Edward Robinson had such an attractive granddaughter.
As it is very difficult to obtain quality copies of Mr. Robinson's films here in Lagos, I am among a minority who possess and regularly view his performances (among my favourites are 'The Cincinatti Kid,' 'The Red House,' and ' A 10 Foot Tall Boy.').
I am extremely happy to have access to persons who share my admiration of your grandfather's work.

Response:   Dear Dr. Obaseki,
Thank you for your kind words. By the way,
"A Boy 10 Feet Tall" was filmed in Nairobi. My grandfather had a heart attack while filming there
and recovered in London. While at the London clinic, he exchanged cigars with fellow patient - Winston Churchill.
He later resumed filming in Kenya.
It was one of my favorite films also.

The Red House scared me as a child due to the quicksand scene. But a very powerful movie.

The Cincinnati Kid was his favorite film in later years.
Thanks you for admiring his work.

Francesca
