Who is Robert Blake and Where He is Now? What is Going on in His Life?

American actor Robert Blake is best known for his roles in the 1967 films In Cold Blood and Baretta (1970).

Blake’s first acting role was as the lead in one of the final years (1939–1944) of the Metro-Goldwyn-Our Mayer’s Gang (Little Rascals) short film series. In addition, he was a child actor in 22 episodes of the series.

In the Red Ryder series and in his adult performances, the Italian-American actor played American Indian and Latino characters repeatedly. Following his service in the United States Army, Blake continued his film and television acting career.

Blake remained engaged in the industry even after the release of the 1997 picture Lost Highway. Author Michael Newton labeled Blake’s career “one of the longest in Hollywood history” due to the fact that he was one of the first child actors to successfully transition to adult roles.
