About the Book

Edward G. Robinson, a 1930s cinema icon, had an acting career that spanned more than 60 years. After a brush with silent films, he rose to true celebrity status in sound feature films and went on to take part in radio and television performances, then back to Broadway and on the road in live theatre. This work documents Robinson’s every known public performance or appearance, listing co-workers, source material, background and critical commentary.
The entries include feature films, documentaries, short subjects, cartoons, television and radio productions, live theatre presentations, narrations, pageants, and recordings. Also included are entries relating to his life and career, ranging from his wives to his art collection.
