HERZOG: Aguirre- Wrath of God

HERZOG: Aguirre- Wrath of God

A ruthless and insane man, Don Lope De Aguirre, leads an expedition of Spaniards in search of the fabled city of El Dorado. The screenplay was written in 2 days on a typewriter while Herzog was on travelling with his drunken soccer team. One of his teammates vomited on his typewriter rendering a portion of the script unreadable. Herzog never recalled exactly what he wrote on those pages.
