    (June 2, 1932-August 11, 2010)
    Born in Berlin, Germany
    Full name was Bruno Schleinstein
    Forklift driver/street musician/outsider artist
    Had lead roles in the Werner Herzog films 'The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser or Every Man for Himself and God Against All' (1974) and 'Stroszek' (1977)
    Appeared in the documentaries 'Bruno the Black' (1970) and 'Bruno S.: Estrangement Is Death' (2003)
    He had a number of arrests for vagrancy and breaking into cars.
    He would hold up filming as he ranted for hours about the injustice of the world.
    He was paranoid that his film earnings would be stolen in a convoluted plot.
    He referred to himself in the third person.
    Herzog said, 'Bruno couldn't relate to human beings so he put all of his love into objects.'
    He was beaten so severely by his prostitute mother that he was left temporarily deaf.
    Because of his deafness, he was sent to an institution for children with learning disabilities when he was three.
    While institutionalized, he was subjected to medical experiments by the Nazis.
    His paintings were displayed at a New York exhibit of outsider art (2004).
    Herzog said, 'In all my films, and with all the great actors with whom I have worked, he was the best. There is no one who comes close to him. I mean in his humanity, and the depth of his performance, there is no one like him.'
