Blind Item #5 - Reader Blind

The military records of this deceased A+ action star which contain a series of cognitive tests he took explain the short terse literal answers he often gave to reporters' questions throughout his career.  He did not have a major lead role until his 40's and wasn't a big star until his 50's but how his career took off then.

The thing was the actor had diagnosed intellectual disability.  He was what they might call in less politically correct terms "retarded" . He could not read or write and had trouble understanding simple concepts. His brutal and poverty stricken childhood did not help.

Luckily, he had good minders around him throughout his entire career especially his second wife, a celebrity herself whom he worked with and who did a very good looking out for him.
