Hi Francesca,

No apologies necessary!!! Where did the years go? I moved to Gig Harbor, Washington and created a paradise here with my husband and all our animals. I hope life finds you healthy. I have such a passion for classic films and my one regret is being too shy to speak to your grandfather who was one of the most versatile and marvelous actors in film history. You are more than welcome to email me. My best, Diana

From Francesca
The following is an excerpt from a speech given by Edward G. Robinson to the American Booksellers Association.
June 1, 1971
It relates to his art collection and to human-kind.
During these turbulent times let us read Eddie's words:
".Sometimes late at night, when the house is quiet, and the last guest has gone, I go into the living room and sit among these quiet friends, and we study each other very gravely, and I hope with mutual pleasure.
Something passes between us, between these glorious living works that will exist forever, and I myself, who will not.
We found you in your youth, they tell me, and you served to bring us together.
Soon enough we will scatter again, but we will not soon forget you, old friend.
Contemplating them at such moments, I am carried away by the deep and satisfying
realization that beyond the room, past those intricate shapes upon the wall, still stands the world they came from. It is never a perfect world, and fires continually rage at the edges. Men die as the artists died, their subjects with them; new slogans are screamed at the sky, and powerful forces pull us this way and that between evil and good, with no man able to clearly say which is which.
But when I think of the stream of history that torments us endlessly, and makes turmoil in our lives, I suddenly
have a moment of hope. For if man himself, sometimes ravaged by drugs, by hunger, and by dissipation, mad with much heart - if man could make this beauty on my walls, if he could produce the life and form and color that make the magic of these canvases, and do it only from tinted earth, stirred with insight and passion and faith, why then there is hope for us all.
We too are made of earth."

Hi Bob or Francesca:
Thanks for your efforts to help!! I am sorry that I can not remember any other details than those I have already shared. I saw it on late night TV over 30 years ago when we lived in Dallas, Texas. It seems "odd" to me that I would remember NOTHING else, but that is unfortunately the case. Sorry.

Hey, Frank, I spoke with Francesca. I believe she has a contact for James Robert Parish and maybe you can connect with him. Also, the messages are to be restored, hopefully, with the aid of the webmistress. Regarding your search for that Robinson film, any other clues, maybe an idea who other players were, the studio, anything else that could help zero in? I looked at THE GLASS WEB again and it doesn't seem a very good match. Nor does SMART MONEY. We're trying. --Bob

Francesca and/or Bob:
As you have already noticed and have already tried to help, I have been trying to find the name of an EGR film
--wherein is contained the scene which I have already described. I was wondering if either of you, or someone else might know where I might be able to contact 2 of the authors which you list under the merchandise section of your web site--Alvin Maril and James Robert Parrish. That way I could expand the search of the scene that stuck in my mind 30 years ago--and maybe I will get "lucky" and one of them might remember. Thanks for all of your attempts to help up to this point. If I find out the answer by myself, I will e-mail you back and tell you the answer. Frank
