In Cold Blood ★★★½ 1967

Truman Capote's supposedly factual novel provided the basis for this hard-hitting docu-drama about two ex-cons who ruthlessly murder a Kansas family in 1959 in order to steal their non-existent stash of money. Blake is riveting as one of the killers. 133m/B VHS, DVD . Robert (Bobby) Blake, Scott Wilson, John Forsythe, Paul Stewart, Gerald S.
