A big screen showing of the Flying Circus squad’s first ‘proper’ feature kicks off our series of ‘Palin & Python’ events.
A silly, ingeniously funny and visually lovely skewing of the Arthurian legend. One count says it contains 527 jokes, or roughly one every 10 seconds, guaranteeing it a top 10 place in numerous all-time best comedy film lists.
Michael Palin, now a real knight, plays the most roles – 12 – and Sir Not-To-Be-Seen-In-This-Film is his then infant son, William.
A cult comedy classic.
