Robert Blake Dies the Day After International Women's Day in 2023, the Year of the Rabbit?👩🐇

I'm a big fan of
David Lynch's movies, so I was kind of amused to see the passing of Robert Blake in the news in 2023 the day after International Women's Day, as his first film role in 1939, the Year of the Rabbit, and the same year 'The Wizard of Oz' was released was a movie titled 'Bridal Suite' where on his Wikipedia page he is credited as Toto and his last film Lynch's 'Lost Highway' he is credited as 'The Mystery Man'.
Bridal Suite (1939)
Of course, the irony here is that Blake, who also starred in the 1967 'In Cold Blood' centered mainly in Kansas was accused of murdering his wife in 2001 on May the 4th (AKA Star Wars Day), but was acquitted of her murder for a lack of evidence.  
Judgment Day: The John List Story TV Movie (1993)
His last TV appearance was in 'Judgement Day: The John List Story' as a real life mass murderer. 
Life and art, as they say?
Dewey was portrayed in the 1967 film version of In Cold Blood by John Forsythe, by Sam Neill in the 1996 TV miniseries adaptation, by Chris Cooper in 2005's Capote and by Jeff Daniels in 2006's Infamous.
Alvin Dewey passed away in 1987, the Year of the Rabbit>;-)
