Edward G Robinson dice

“If I were just a bit taller and I was a little more handsome or something like that, I could have played all the roles that I have played, and played many more. There is such a thing as a handicap, but you’ve got to be that much better as an actor. It kept me from certain roles that I might have had, but then, it kept others from playing my roles, so I don’t know that it’s not altogether balanced.” — Edward G. Robinson

“When will I retire? I can’t say, because somehow I can’t quite visualize getting to the end of the gallery of portraits I’d like to paint – on stage and screen. Just now it seems to me I’ll never want to retire – and being the sort of actor I am, not dependent upon beauty nor the bloom of youth to put me across, possibly I’ll be able to do my last portrait wearing a long grey beard the makeup man won’t have to apply.”Edward G. Robinson
