Emanuel Goldenberg was born in Romania and from the age of ten grew up in New York's Lower East Side. He trained at the legendary Theater Guild, changed his name, and starred in many successful Broadway plays before moving to Hollywood. Among his most famous films were Double Indemnity with Barbara Stanwyck, The Stranger with Orson Welles, Key Largo with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, The Ten Commandments with Charlton Heston, The Cincinnati Kid with Steve McQueen, and, of course, Little Caesar. After twenty successful years in film, Robinson's career was shattered by the McCarthy Commission. Although there was never any concrete proof that Robinson was in fact a member of the Communist party, it took five years for him to clear his name. In this fascinating biography, Alan L. Gansberg reveals the man behind the public face, his many memorable roles among more than 100 films, and his struggle to find steady work in Hollywood again. Includes 16 pages of photos.

Industry Reviews

With this authoritative biography, Alan L. Gansberg reaffirms his place in the very first rank of Hollywood historians. He not only gives us a portrait that captures the essence of Edward G. Robinson's electric screen personality, vulnerability and even his pain, but Mr. Gansberg also provides an important contextual framework for understanding the Hollywood in which Robinson lived and worked. Invaluable and indispensable for any student of the man and his period.--Lionel Chetwynd
