    One thought on “All My Yesterdays”

    1. Superior auto-biography because you really feel E.G.R's presence in the pages. Not just a cataloging of the actor's films but a story of a life with many interests and insights as well as a chronicling decades of time on various continents and experiences. From being a refugee to America from Rumania through fame and the unfairness of the blacklist that destroyed his life for many years it's a fascinating journey and always at its core his enormous love for art-his ultimate passion.

    2.

    4. Edward G like Bogart, was a favourite actor of mine growing up. This autobiography is fairly good and quite candid but suffers from being incomplete (EGR died before it was done). One of his closest friends finished it off so we have something. Most interesting stuff for me was EGRs collection of the great Impressionists before they were cool.

    5. Finished reading (for the second time) All My Yesterdays, an autobiography by Edward G. Robinson, The Appendix, his notes on acting, was worth the price of admission, so to speak.
