Herzog once promised to eat his shoe if a young American film student went out and actually made the film he was always only talking about. The young student was Errol Morris, who met the challenge with his off-beat 1978 pet cemetery documentary Gates of Heaven (and went on to make The Thin Blue Line and Fast, Cheap and Out of Control.) Herzog makes good on his promise in the film "Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe", directed by Les Blank. http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0001348/bio
