Hm, that's the next Monty Python title in my queue. Hope it's better than the Holy Grail one.

It depends on your preferences... If you're only halfways into medieval history/culture and/or Arthurian legend, Holy Grail is tough to beat.

Life of Brian has a lot more bite when it comes to politics, though.

Forgot about that, could be derived from this?



I remember Malcom Muggeridge. Not sure what his claim to fame was.
Typical of the intellectuals that thought the BBC was their natural home.

N.

EDIT:
Nice bit of English snobbery when Muggeridge has a go at Clees about his second-rate public school(private in the UK, very expensive). 7:14 in.

Forgot how class ridden the uk was then, not much better now.

Another EDIT:
Interesting comment from Palin about taking current English situations and putting them back in historical situations. 4:20 in.

Best get this in:

Fourty years old.... and still banned on Good Friday in Germany.

Still, the best Monty Python movie is none... its Brazil. (It had Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin though)

Indeed a good movie, sadly not a happy ending.

N.

Is it really banned?

Yes. But that applies to all non-serious movies on that day. Also no dancing in public.

Is it just me that finds it weird that people would cut out certain 'bits' out of this footage, considering what else is available on the internet?

It is odd, I used it as its short and has the relevant dialogue.

The editor is a very naughty boy!

Actually, the best bits are missing. And I'm of course referring to "We are all individuals" and "Are you a virgin?"

True, but I just wanted the punch-line.
