From Les Blank's Wikipedia article:

"Other notable films on non-musical subjects include a film about garlic and another about gap-toothed women, as well as two films about German film director Werner Herzog: Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe (1980) and Burden of Dreams (1982)"

 

What a riot this guy must have been.

Actor & comedian Jonathan Winters dies at the age of 87.

 

Apparently he starred in 'Mork & Mindy' as an Alien baby!

I vaguely remember him, as I was only a nipper myself when the show first aired in the UK
