Edward G. Robinson or Edward Goldenberg Robinson (in Yiddish, עמנואל גאָלדנבערג: Emanuel Goldenberg ; Bucharest, December 12, 1893 – Los Angeles, January 26, 1973) was an American actor of Romanian origin who worked in theater and film.
Of Jewish family, during his childhood he lived in a Yiddish community. In 1903, he emigrated to New York with his family, who settled in the East End. He could not have his studies, but he was determined to become a rabbi or lawyer. He got a scholarship to enter the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where he would transform his name to Edward G. Robinson.
He began his career as a substitute in 1913 and made his Broadway debut in 1915, where among other plays he plays The Man of Destiny, by George Bernard Shaw. His first role in the cinema was a secondary role in 1916. In 1923 he debuted as E. G. Robinson in The Bright Shawl. But the interpretation that would throw him to fame would be that of Rico Bandello in Hampa Dorada (Little Caesar) by Mervyn LeRoy which would lead him to be the hard man of the 30s. Thus, Robinson went from making three films a year to do more than 14 in the next two years. During that time he married actress Gladys Lloyd in 1927 with whom he has a son, Manny Robinson (1933-1974).
During the 40s and after a good performance in Dr. Ehrlich’s Magic Bullet (1940), his profile would fit with psychological drama such as the Double Indemnity (1944) by Billy Wilder or The Woman in the Box (The Woman in the Window) (1945) and Perversity (Scarlet Street) (1945) by Fritz Lang. But he continued to accept roles of gangsters like Johnny Rocco in the classic Key Largo by John Huston (1948), the last of the five films he would do with Humphrey Bogart.
Things did not start very well for Robinson in the 1950s. First, he would be accused of being a Communist, lending himself to testify before the committee of the famous Witch Hunt, against some of his colleagues like Dalton Trumbo, which it would bring very serious consequences; later the actor had to sell part of his immense art collection to defray the expenses of the divorce with Gladys Lloyd. In 1956 he returned to Broadway to play Middle of the Night. But that was the moment in which Cecil B. DeMille, declared marcarthista, decides to work with him in The Ten Commandments (The Ten Commandments). From here his most notable roles would arrive: Millionaire of illusions (To Hole in the Head) (1959) of Frank Capra next to Frank Sinatra and the king of the game (The Cincinnati Kid) (1965), of Norman Jewison with Steve McQueen.
Robinson became enormously popular in the 30s and 40s with a career of more than 90 films in 50 years of profession. His last scene would be a suicide in the cult classic of science fiction When Fate reaches us (Soylent Green) (1973), by Richard Fleischer. He would die two months after filming this film and two months before he was awarded an honorary Oscar for his career. Robinson never became an Oscar candidate for his interventions. It has its name a star of the Hollywood Walk of Fame located at 6233 Hollywood Boulevard.
