Blake was great in “In Cold Blood.”
But, perhaps even better in “In Cold Blood II-I left my gun in the restaurant and when I got back the the car, my wife had been shot.”

Could you ask the mod to revise the title to clarify, maybe add [interview].. I thought maybe it was going to be an obit.

I thought this was an obit????
He seemed to be a capable actor. He must have had a “relationship” with the wrong guy’s wife. Or refused to have a “relatinship” with the wrong guy.

I hate it when that happens to me.
I loved his poem, "The Tyger"
I thought it was an obit as well.

Ygota drill in, its part of the deal Rab thinks.

Thanks for posting. Excellent interview. I was going to go to bed, but ended up watching the whole deal. I remember seeing him in interviews eons ago. He’s always been totally candid in all his interviews. Was interesting to hear about how his mom tried to abort him herself when she couldn’t come up with the 15 bucks to pay Frank Sinatra’s mom.
About his more recent history, I wish he had never got caught up with that bad news Bonnie woman. I hope he wasn’t the one that killed her or had her killed.

He was the little kid who sold Bogey the winning lottery ticket in Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

He did a good job in “Electra-glide in Blue”.

Thank you so much for posting this thread and the links.
This was one of, if no the best, interviews I have ever seen.
Mr. Blake fully acknowledged that he has merely been the vessel used by G-d for his work.

That’s quite an interview. Thanks for posting.

“Treasure of the Sierra Madre” just started on TCM, and the scene with RB is how the movie starts out. What timing LOL.

No reason given for having this in the Religion Forum. Shouldn’t it be in “chat”?
And, no, when people don’t post the story, I’m not going to open up another window and read it.

(POLITICIAN...............a four letter word spelled with ten letters.)
Funny that was Perry Smith’s favorite movie and Robert Blake went on to play as him in In Cold Blood.
