Published by Hawthorn Books, 1973 [Hardcover] Born on December 12, 1893, in Bucharest, Romania, Edward G. Robinson died on January 26, 1973, in Hollywood, CA. A Romanian-born U.S. film actor, he was raised in New York City's Lower East Side and won a scholarship to the American Academy of Dramatic Art. He was largely a stage actor until the advent of sound movies. He won fame playing a gangster boss in Little Caesar (1931).

His later films include Barbary Coast (1935), Double Indemnity (1944), The Woman in the Window (1944), Scarlet Street (1945), All My Sons (1948), Key Largo (1948), and The Cincinnati Kid (1965). In 1973 he was posthumously awarded an honorary Academy Award. In his autobiography, "All My Yesterdays", Robinson credited Cecil B. DeMille with saving his career."; 9.30 X 6.10 X 1.60 inches; 344 pages.
