Roberts Blossom 1924-2011

    Actor Roberts Blossom passed away at the age of 87 on July 8. NY Times Obit here. Wonderful character actor, his credits include Escape From Alcatraz, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Christine and most likely his most recognizable role - the kindly elderly neighbor in Home Alone. A rare starring role for him was Deranged (1973), loosely based upon the story of the Ed Gein "the butcher of Plainfield".
