MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
1975, Rainbow Releasing, 91 min, UK, Dir: Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones

Python's $250,000 epic features Graham Chapman as King Arthur, John Cleese as Sir Lancelot the Brave and Eric Idle as Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-as-Sir-Lancelot. From the limb-impaired Black Knight, to the immortal Knights Who Say Ni, killer rabbits, the Black Beast of Aarrgghh and the extremely rude Frenchman, HOLY GRAIL is one of the most beloved and quoted cult classics.

ERIK THE VIKING
1989, Park Circus/MGM, 107 min, UK, Dir: Terry Jones

Told by village wise woman Freya (Eartha Kitt) that Fenrir the wolf has swallowed the sun and plunged the world into the dark age of Ragnarok, Erik (Tim Robbins) gathers warriors from his village to petition the gods to end the darkness. This film has been described as a “Python-esque satire of Viking life,” and also stars Mickey Rooney as Erik’s grandfather. As a favor to his friend and director Jones, John Cleese agreed to replace Jack Lemmon as Hafdan the Black on short notice. “Be there … or beheaded!”
