    De familia judía, durante su infancia vivió en una comunidad Yiddish. En 1903, emigró a Nueva York con su familia, que se instaló en el East End. No pudo tener sus estudios, pero estaba decidido a convertirse en rabino o abogado. Consiguió una beca para entrar en la Academia Americana de Artes Dramáticas, donde transformaría su nombre por el de Edward G. Robinson. Comenzó su carrera como suplente en 1913 e hizo su debut en Broadway en 1915, donde entre otras obras interpreta El hombre del destino, de George Bernard Shaw. Su primer papel en el cine fue un papel secundario en 1916. En 1923 debutaba como E. G. Robinson en The Bright Shawl. Pero la interpretación que le lanzaría a la fama sería la de Rico Bandello en Hampa dorada (Little Caesar) de Mervyn LeRoy lo que le llevaría a ser el hombre duro de la década de los 30. Así, Robinson pasó de hacer tres películas al año a hacer más de 14 en los dos años siguientes. Durante esa época se casa con la actriz Gladys Lloyd en 1927 con la q...

    The Racket

    He played a snarling gang­ster in the 1927 Broad­way po­lice/crime drama The Racket, which led to his being cast in sim­i­lar film roles, be­gin­ning with The Hole in the Wall (1929) with Claudette Col­bert for Para­mount. One of many ac­tors who saw their ca­reers flour­ish in the new sound filmera rather than fal­ter, he made only three films prior to 1930, but left his stage ca­reer that year and made 14 films be­tween 1930 and 1932. Robin­son went to Uni­ver­sal for Night Ride (1930) and...

    Little Caesar

    Robin­son was es­tab­lished as a film actor. What made him a star was an ac­claimed per­for­mance as the gang­ster Cae­sar En­rico "Rico" Ban­dello in Lit­tle Cae­sar (1931) at Warner Bros. Robin­son signed a long term con­tract with Warn­ers. They put him in an­other gang­ster film, Smart Money (1931), his only movie with James Cagney.

Cas­sell, an ar­chi­tect, sculp­tor and artist. The cou­ple had one son, Ed­ward G. Robin­son, Jr. (a.k.a. Manny Robin­son, 1933–1974), as well as a daugh­ter from Gladys Robin­son's first marriage.

In no­tice­able con­trast to many of his on­screen char­ac­ters, Robin­son was a sen­si­tive, soft-spo­ken and cul­tured man who spoke seven languages. Re­main­ing a lib­eral De­mo­c­rat, he at­tended the 1960 De­mo­c­ra­tic Con­ven­tion in Los An­ge­les, Cal­i­for­nia. He was a pas­sion­ate art col­lec­tor, even­tu­ally build­ing up a sig­nif­i­cant pri­vate col­lec­tion. In 1956, how­ever, he was forced to sell...

    Robin­son died of blad­der can­cer at Cedars Sinai Hos­pi­tal in Los An­ge­les on Jan­u­ary 26, 1973. Ser­vices were held at Tem­ple Is­rael in Los An­ge­les where Charl­ton He­s­ton de­liv­ered the eulogy.:131 Over 1,500 friends of Robin­son at­tended with an­other 500 crowded outside.:125 His body was then flown to New York where it was en­tombed in a crypt in the fam­ily mau­soleum at Beth-El Ceme­tery in Brooklyn.:131 Among his pall­bear­ers were Jack L. Warner, Hal B. Wal­lis, Mervyn LeRoy, George Burns, Sam Jaffe, and Frank Sina­tra. In Oc­to­ber 2000, Robin­son's image was im­printed on a U.S. postage stamp, its sixth in its Leg­ends of Hol­ly­wood series.:125

    Dur­ing the 1930s, Robin­son was an out­spo­ken pub­lic critic of fas­cism and Nazism, and he also do­nated more than $250,000 to 850 po­lit­i­cal and char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions be­tween 1939 and 1949. He was host to the Com­mit­tee of 56which gath­ered at his home on De­cem­ber 9, 1938, sign­ing a "De­c­la­ra­tion of De­mo­c­ra­tic In­de­pen­dence" which called for a boy­cott of all Ger­man-made products. Al­though he at­tempted to en­list in the mil­i­tary at the out­break of World War II, he was un­able to do so be­cause of his age; in­stead, the Of­fice of War In­for­ma­tion ap­pointed him as a Spe­cial Rep­re­sen­ta­tive based in London.:106 From there, tak­ing ad­van­tage of his mul­ti­lin­gual skills, he de­liv­ered radio ad­dresses in over six lan­guages to Eu­ro­pean coun­tries which had fallen under Nazi dom­i­na­tion.:106 His tal­ent as a radio speaker in the U.S. had pre­vi­ously been rec­og­nized by the Amer­i­can Le­gion, which had given him an award for his "out­...

    Robin­son has been the in­spi­ra­tion for a num­ber of an­i­mated tele­vi­sion char­ac­ters, usu­ally car­i­ca­tures of his most dis­tinc­tive 'snarling gang­ster' guise. An early ver­sion of the gang­ster char­ac­ter Rocky, fea­tured in the Bugs Bunny car­toon Rack­e­teer Rab­bit, shared his like­ness. This ver­sion of the char­ac­ter also ap­pears briefly in Jus­tice League, in the episode "Com­fort and Joy", as an alien with Robin­son's face and non-hu­man body, who hov­ers past the screen as a back­ground char­ac­ter. Sim­i­lar car­i­ca­tures also ap­peared in The Coo-Coo Nut Grove, Thugs with Dirty Mugs and Hush My Mouse. An­other char­ac­ter based on Robin­son's tough-guy image was The Frog (Chauncey "Flat Face" Frog) from the car­toon se­ries Coura­geous Cat and Minute Mouse. The voice of B.B. Eyes in The Dick Tracy Show was based on Robin­son, with Mel Blanc and Jerry Haus­ner shar­ing voic­ing du­ties. The Wacky Racesan­i­mated se­ries char­ac­ter 'Clyde' from the Ant Hill...
