Hello Francesca:
We are related in that my father, the late Samuel Goldenberg, was your grandfather's cousin. My grandfather's name was Isidore. My father came to the US in 1904 at the age of 4 years. He was a beautiful person and a talented and creative handbag designer. His bags were sold at the very best stores!
We have a family website: The Goldenberg Family Website. You probably are already aware of it. If not, you should visit it to learn about the rest of your family.
We have many accomplished family members who have been and are doing very well in their respective fields. Isidore would have been very proud of what he did by bravely coming here from Romania! His name is on the wall at Ellis Island.
We certainly share your pride in your grandfather's accomplishments. but he was not alone!
At 69, after retirement(36 years of work), I am still employed as a Consultant to the Federal Government in a critical natiowide program and I still ride my bike 30 miles with no health problems at all. We come from very healthy stock!
Best wishes,

Response:   Dear Marion,

It is so wonderful to hear that Eddie was but one of many Goldenberg's to enjoy success. Your family should be rightly proud of it's accomplishments.
Please send me some more information.

Best Regards,

Hi, I thought you would like to know that I recently bought and original portrait of your grandfather painted in 1961 by Harry Longo. Harry Longo, originally from Paterson NJ, worked for Walt Disney studios in California. His works reflects his interest in film stars like your grandfather. It would be interesting to know if your grandfathr actually sat for the painting. I have not seen any pictures that might have suggested the portrait. If you have any interest in seeing it, I may be able to send it via email.

Billy Wilder....and many others. Eddie respected professionalism. And both he and Billy had their love of art in common.

Best Regards,

Dear Ms. Robinson-Sanchez,
I think your website is a wonderful tribute to your grandfather. Your grandfather was one of my all-time favorite actors since I was a kid growing up in the 60's seeing his movies on TV - now on TCM and DVD. I was in college in NYC when your grandfather passed away and read All My Yesterdays, which I have recently re-read as a 52 yr old. It is a truly a wonderful autobiography which brings out your grandfather's warmth, manner of speaking, devotion to family, country, humanity and his work. When I first read it in my 20's, his life story inspired me to work hard, stay focused. It also inspired a life-long interest in art and classical music. Do you still have your grandfather's Steinway Ampico reproducing piano? - recently heard a restored one - they are truly magnificent instruments and very rare today. Best wishes,
Tom Turrin

Response:   Dear Tom,

What a wonderful and inspiring letter! Eddie's legacy lives on through the people he has touched...like you.
His standards were high but his ability to inspire others to reach for those standards is part of his gift to all of us. Your letter is testimony of this.

Per his wishes, The Steinway was left to UCLA.
What a wonderful instrument!
Steve Allen was the last to play it at the Stamp Commemoration for Eddie in 2000.
Eddie was the Sixth Legend Of Hollywood to be honored by the US Postal Service. (One week later Steve Allen was tragically taken from us.)
He played "Our Love Is Here To Stay" by George Gershwin, who was one of Eddie's best friends.)

Thank you for your kind words,

Warmly,

Francesca
