How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck (1976)

West Germany 44m, Colour
Director: Werner Herzog: Cast: Werner Herzog, Steve Liptay, Ralph Wade, Alan Ball, Abe Diffenbach

how-much-wood-would-a-woodchuck-chuckHow Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck is a curious film about the language of the American auctioneer shot for German television. Filmed in New Holland, Pennsylvania, Herzog documents the 1976 World Livestock Auctioneer Championships and interviews a couple of the winning participants. Though the production is largely concerned with the auctioneering folk, Herzog is briefly sidetracked by the old-German speaking local Amish population with whom he converses in what becomes the most interesting segment of this film (Klaus Ming March 2016).
