Troubled actor Robert Blake performed an impromptu version of classic tune SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW to press outside a Van Nuys, California, courthouse yesterday (02FEB04).

The BARETTA star, who is facing trial for the suspected murder of his wife Bonny Lee Bakley, was in court requesting TV camera coverage at his upcoming pre-trial testimony.

His request was rejected but that didn't the actor's spirits, as he proved by singing on the steps of the courthouse.

Blake is due back in court on 17 February (04).
