A box set of 4 Monty Python classics. The first Monty Python film ‘And Now For Something Completely Different’ (1971) is a collection of some of their better-known television sketches, including the legendary ‘Dead Parrot’ sketch and the ‘Lumberjack Song’. John Cleese, Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin make up the troupe. ‘The Holy Grail’ (1975) was their second feature. King Arthur and his trusty knights fearlessly (on the most part) travel the length and breadth of the country in search of the mythical Holy Grail. On their way they have to deal with the sarcastic taunts of the French Knight, the Knights who say ‘Ni’, Tim the Enchanter and the Terror of the Cave of Caerbannog amongst other things. ‘Life of Brian’ (1979) was banned in 17 countries on release. Set during Biblical times, the film tells the story of Brian (Graham Chapman), an accidental messiah whose life runs in eerie parallel to that of Jesus Christ. His misadventures come to the attention of Pilate, crucifixion inevitably follows, and the film ends with the infamous group rendition of the song ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’. Finally, in ‘The Meaning of Life’ (1983) the Monty Python team embark after the holy grail of human understanding with a series of sketches aimed at discovering the meaning of life itself. Includes the show-stopping anti-contraception musical number ‘Every Sperm is Sacred’, a schoolmaster’s overly vivid demonstration of the facts of life for his students, and the infamous sequence in which a restaurant diner goes one mint too far…
