18 Behind-The-Scenes Facts About Monty Python Films

None of us would disagree that Monty Python and the Holy Grail deserves to be included in everyone’s top 10 comedy movies of all time unless you asked them. This renowned parody of conventional Arthurian legends has become such a masterpiece that it has spawned its very own Broadway comedy, Spamalot.

The King Arthur narrative has now been transferred to cinema numerous times, but perhaps the most remembered is Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a comedic classic. The legendary British comedy show's first feature debut film is a much referenced now frequently mocked movie that, despite its age, shows no signs of wear and tear.
