Artist, writer, and actor Roberts Blossom had led a remarkable life long before he made his film appearance in 1971. Raised in deep poverty during the Depression, Blossom was reading The Communist Manifesto by flashlight as a child, and declared himself a conscientious objector during World War II, stating he had attained spiritual enlightenment as an "independent yogi," though the Army responded by placing him in a mental hospital. Following a number of creative and spiritual paths, Blossom began to establish himself as a stage actor off Broadway in the 1950s, and helped to form a pioneering, avant-garde, multimedia theater troupe in the early '60s. In the early '70s, Blossom began playing supporting characters in a number of movies (his lone lead role was in the bizarre cult-horror film Deranged), and he developed a small but loyal following for his distinctive, memorable portrayals. Full Blossom: The Life Of Poet/Actor Roberts Blossom takes a look at Blossom's work onscreen, as well as the man behind the camera, examining his political and spiritual convictions, his belief in reincarnation (Blossom is certain his son was Michelangelo in a previous life), his career as a poet, and his relationship with his family.
