HERZOG: Heart of Glass

HERZOG: Heart of Glass

Set in an 18th Century Bavarian town, a master glassblower dies and the secret of his red ruby glass is lost with him. A local baron becomes mad with grief over the loss of the ruby glass as he believes it to have magical properties. The entire cast, save for the glass blowers and lead actor, was hypnotized by Herzog before each shot. Herzog provided the actors with their dialogue which they remembered during their hypnosis.
