The Nut from Nutley
7 November 2014 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Robert 'Baretta' Blake (you know, the guy who killed his wife) left his hometown of Nutley, New Jersey in 1933 to make a fool of himself over and over again in Hollywood (see the video on Youtube where Blake gets kicked out of a celebrity autograph show), including the time he got featured in this ridiculous waste of celluloid.

Blake (his real name is Mickey Gubitosi) pulled his head out of his butt just long enough to stumble through this garbage about a loser who travels with a woman to Nowheresville, USA. The plot (so called) of this throw-away flick is no more complex than that, and if you think that sounds lame, you're right.

Blake appears here predictably bad and typically unbalanced. No wonder his real-life daughter Delinah got a restraining order on him. Pass on this vomit.
