‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’: The Peak of British Comedy
No film studio was prepared to invest in their project, but the Pythons managed to make the best out of the fact that England had very high taxes for the rich at that specific time. Music stars tried to find a way to salvage their earnings, so the likes of Elton John, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin decided to invest in the picture. This, however, hardly means the crew had it easy. In the manner of John Carpenter, the undisputed king of crippling budget creativity, the Pythons not only managed to finish the film, but some of its most entertaining parts were given birth to by the evident lack of money. The inspired but shockingly simple opening sequence with Swedish subtitles, the plywood inch high model of Camelot and the legendary coconuts instead of real horses first come to mind. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is practically a series of comedic sketches ranging from entertaining to bloody hilarious, set in the medieval times of King Arthur and his iconic Knights of the Round Table. Despite the fact the film was first envisioned as constantly shifting focus from past to present with the Holy Grail eventually found at Harrods , the Pythons decided to set in entirely in the medieval period, spoofing one of the founding legends of the British Isles.
