Werner Herzog is celebrating his 77th birthday today. As a number of online tributes attest, he is one of the most acclaimed directors of his generation.
Popular director-producer-screenwriter-author-actor Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, ...) has always liked to keep a bit of himself hidden from view. At 77th birthday, he remains a man of many facets.
Herzog, a cultural icon
Born Werner Herzog Stipetić in Munich on September 5, 1942, his career spans an arc over many different eras and tastes in German history. Herzog's not just a great director, he's an inspiration, an icon and a successful business man. At this point in his career, there seems to be little Werner hasn't done.
And we've got a feeling the next 12 months are going to be even bigger and better for Werner Herzog as he promises more to come. After all, he's only 77.
Happy Birthday, Werner, you're the best!
