VINTAGE FILM Monty Python and the Holy Grail


Monty Python and the Holy Grail

The highest-grossing British film of 1975 was nominated for pretty much nothing in its day, but then there’s never been an award for the film most likely to make your beverage come out your nose with laughter. With killer rabbits, holy hand grenades, and vast tracts of land, The Holy Grail also offers a historical context for the Anglo-Franco hostilities to be heard leading up to this year’s “Brexit” referendum.

Director: Terry Gilliam

Starring: Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones
