The Edward G. Robinson Poster Gallery

I find it ironic that a man who loved the world of art and collecting it is now part of that world himself. Classic film posters have become highly collectable and one could look upon them as pieces or prints if you prefer of artworks.

“There are only three ways to deal with a blackmailer. You can pay him and pay him and pay him until you’re penniless. Or you can call the police yourself and let your secret be known to the world. Or you can kill him.”

The prophetic line from Johnny Rocco. “After living in the USA for more than thirty-five years they called me an undesirable alien. Me. Johnny Rocco. Like I was a dirty Red or something!”

“You know, I can’t figure it. I like the dames, but they don’t go for me. I’m strictly a cold wire in that department. ”

“All you got to do is hang that right on his spinach box, and he’ll fold.”

Of all the films and performances if I am asked to suggest a Robinson film/performance to a newbie it would have to be Key Largo where he plays Johnny Rocco. Love it! On the flip side I put this gallery together as the Oscar festivities are about to kick off on television to award films from the 2014 calender year. Unlike many of Eddie’s characters who received their due justice on screen, Eddie the actor never got his off screen. Kind of hard to believe an actor of his caliber was never once nominated by the Academy. He did receive a lifetime achievement award posthumously.

  1. Great gallery!

    Kind of hard to believe an actor of his caliber was never once nominated by the Academy.

    Well, not really. So many important figures of movie history have been ignored by the Academy (Stanwyck or Lupino, anyone?) that it’s hard to take the Oscars seriously. Tonight I’m so excited by the Oscars that I’m planning to watch I Start Counting (1969) instead.

      • I usually flip over and check it out off and on while watching a flick.

        Luckily my wife enjoys the razzmattazz, so I can avoid the flipping over altogether. This year I’m interested in the fate of Eddie Redmayne, Julianne Moore and Theory of Everything, and that’s about it. Timothy Spall and Mr Turner were ignored (though thank gawd that movie’s cinematographer got a nod!), which was where, this year, I lost interest.
