I want to go act. I want to go teach. I want to dance. “I can be an actor no matter what happens,” he continued. “I was in the middle of a job when my father committed suicide, and I went to work the next day.” Conversing with Blake is like riding an emotional roller coaster, as he goes from reflective and poetic one moment to a rant about reporters the next. “You ask too many questions,” he barks at one point. “Don’t you know not to interrupt an actor when he’s on a roll?” “I’m not on trial anymore,” he declares angrily at another point. “You’re dealing with Michael James Gubitosi (his given name) now. … I’m going to survive no matter what.” MALIBU – A year after Robert Blake was acquitted in criminal court of killing his wife, the former tough-guy actor spends his days exercising Arabian horses at a friends’ ranch above the Pacific Ocean and planning his acting comeback. In November, a civil court jury found Blake liable for the death of his wife and ordered him to pay her family $30 million. Blake, 72, acknowledges frequent despair in the past 12 months. But the actor who played the hard-boiled cop in the 1970s TV show “Baretta” says he’s finally begun to emerge from that dark period, having concluded, “I want to live.” “Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of my acquittal,” he told The Associated Press on Friday in the first interview he has granted since his civil trial concluded four months ago. He threatens to end the interview when a question is asked about Rosie, the young daughter he had with the wife he was accused of killing, Bonny Lee Bakley. At another point, saying he wants to “sing a song to Rosie,” he launches into a melodic rendition of the pop song “You Are So Beautiful to Me.” Blake was interviewed at a ranch where he said he is working as a stable boy. He said the owners, who are friends, allow him to exercise some of the horses at the site, filled with the sounds of roosters crowing and horses whinnying. Blake also spoke about filing for bankruptcy protection in the wake of his trials and railed against “the guys who wear the suits,” lawyers and accountants he said have profited from his case. The only one for whom he had kind words was M. Gerald Schwartzbach, the criminal lawyer who won his acquittal. “I love Gerry Schwartzbach,” he said. “He’s my friend, and I’m his friend. He happens to have saved my life.” Before the death of Bakley, Blake was a wealthy man who had invested money from his film and TV career in real estate. His worth at the time of her death had been estimated to be as much as $4 million, but his financial records have been sealed and are now in the hands of bankruptcy court. The properties have since been sold, with much of the money used for his legal defense. Blake points out that he offered Bakley’s children a settlement of $250,000 before the civil trial began, and they rejected it. “I offered them hard money, tax-free. I said I don’t want to give it to the lawyers,” Blake said. Instead, the family members took Blake to trial, and a jury awarded them $30 million, an amount unlikely to be paid. Blake said he is broke and living on his Social Security and Screen Actors Guild pension. With his bankruptcy case pending, he said he needs permission to get a new car or search for a house with a yard. He’s living in a small apartment now, a far cry from the homes he occupied when he was rich. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
