A mesmerising screen presence, Edward G. Robinson (1893-1973) may have lacked the physical stature and good looks of a leading man, but he more than compensated with the passion and authority of his acting. Forever identified with the snarling gangster of Little Caesar (1931), in real life he was a man embued with great kindness, generosity, civiity, and a passionate love of fine art.

In any professional meritocracy there are winners and losers, but occasionally an industry leading light is consistently overlooked. Robinson was never once nominated for an academy award – an oversight that beggars belief – yet with hindsight, he is now rightly considered one of the greatest actors of te 20th century.

If you are unfamiliar with his body of work, then give today’s mindless CGI epics a well deserved rest, and discover his oeuvre. Even the minor entries in his cinematic cannon are emblematic of acting at its finest.
