To Carol Haring: Taking the liberty of responding to your question, Edward G. Robinson did indeed speak German. Moreover, in a number of roles, he adopted a superb accent, notably in 1963's THE PRIZE, in a dual role.

Hi. I'm a German teacher and am wondering if your grandfather spoke German ? I read that he spoke six languages before coming here from Rumania - was German one of them ?

To Marilyn Carruthers: Taking the liberty of responding to your question, the story is that Robinson was the name of a character announced by a butler in a play EGR saw, and he thought it sounded dignified. The play was called THE PASSERBY. He was urged to change his name from Emanuel Goldenberg to Americanize it and make it "better" for marquee value. "Edward" was the current king of England; the "G" he called his "private treaty with my past," but he also said it could stand for "gangster," or "God-knows what."

Hi Francesca,

I was wondering if you know why your grandfather chose the name Robinson? Had that name previously been in the family? Was it special somehow? Just curious.

Thanks,

Hi Francesca.
Have not heard from you for about 2 years,. since I visited you in Malibu. I was wondering if you have given more thought to something involving the Desert Batallion? Those ladies aren't getting any younger. Mom is 82, broke her hip, but has recovered well. What ever happened to the screen play idea? Would love to hear from you. I may be coming to LA this fall.would enjoy meeting up with you. Hope all is well.
