* SaharanShipwreck: An abandoned ship is found atop a tree in the middle of the jungle. The original script expanded this into an actual subplot[[note]]The Amazon sometimes has drastic changes of water flow so it's actually not that far-fetched for ''a ship to end trapped in a tree''[[/note]] but the final cut leaves it ambiguous and it might as well be a figment of the men's imagination, since they are all mad at that point. Since ''Aguirre'' is the ultimate RiverOfMadness story, this is actually very fitting.

The film kickstarted Herzog’s career and was the first of several collaborations with Kinski. [[TroubledProduction The filming was said to be a nightmare]]. For example, according to legend, Herzog directed Kinski at gunpoint when the actor refused to follow his commands. Herzog insists that the story is apocryphal, and that he [[SarcasmMode merely]] threatened to shoot both Kinski and himself should the actor choose to quit the film. Creator/RogerEbert regularly listed it on his top ten movies of all time.

* SameLanguageDub: According to Creator/WernerHerzog, Creator/KlausKinski requested too much money for the dubbing session, and so his lines were performed by another actor.

The Latter two's fate are more ambiguous and with both them alone in the jungle, it's debatable if they will survive. Likewise Aguirre is last seen on a the raft that has been attack by the natives multiple times and the real life Aguirre was ultimately dismember.]]

''Aguirre, the Wrath of God'' (''Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes'') is one of Creator/WernerHerzog’s first films. It deals with the voyage of Spanish conquerors to South America, in which a separate group is formed by Don Pedro de Urzúa, Don Lope de Aguirre (KlausKinski) and others. Of course, [[RiverOfInsanity being alone in the jungle starts driving the people mad]].
