“Eddie and Bogie”- Films pairing Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson
Edward G. Robinson once said, “I know I'm not much on face value, but when it comes to stage value, I'll deliver for you.” While neither of these iconic actors were known for their pretty faces, boy was he right, they could sure act!
