Dear Francesca,

What a surprise I just had, reading about your grandfather.
Naming Bogart as my favourite actor is just a way to explain how I got so well introduced to EGR's image - and what a memorable one it is.

Most often, I saw him playing the role of the villain, or the subterranean achiever, or whatever else, just like those roles were especially written for him. I for one could nothing but associate his look with that of the original 20'-50' american gangster.

You can maybe imagine my stupor when accidentally reading an note somewhere, saying that he was born in Bucharest?!

I don't know how much of Romania has left within EGR, after having found refuge in the United States, so early in his life, but - had he not left Romania at that time - the world would surely have lost one great actor.

Here's my intention. There's a big audienced, national contest television program, called "Great Romanians of all time", running on our national tv channel. Not our original ideea - just another imported and adapted formula, aready gone through great success in other european countries.

I'll give my vote to Mr. Edward G. Robinson.
I am not one of those who claim big figures that "have made it" outside, after leaving for good - and romanians certainly do that a lot, with Brancusi for instance. Let's say I just want to give my personal homage to someone that entetained me so many hours.

EGR will most probably not win the contest, of course, but then, how many of my trophy hunter co-nationals know him, or the fact that he was born in the capital of our country?

I imagine the news of one romanian having been awarded an Oscar for lifetime achievement breaking somehow in our media - what an instant prime time would that make. Well, I doubt this will happen, just like - speaking of trophies - I doubt there will be another native romanian awarded with an Oscar, long time from now on.

With friendship, from Bucharest,
Vlad Aldea

I am posting a new entry with a little bit more information. I am looking for a Heather Walsh from Philadelphia, born in the mid to late 1950's. Her father was a strongman named Jack Walsh, who passed away on June 11th, 2001 in New Orleans, Louisianna. Her mother was a local singer named Nicci. This Nicci, was a relative of Edward G. Robinson. Any help, Francesca????
