Film on the Rocks: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

1 of 19
Monty Python and the Holy Grail loosely follows the legend of King Arthur. Arthur (Chapman) along with his squire Patsy (Gilliam) recruits his Knights of the Round Table, including Sir Bedevere the Wise (Jones), Sir Lancelot the Brave (Cleese), Sir Robin the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot (Idle) and Sir Galahad the Pure (Palin). The group is instructed by God (represented by an animated photograph of legendary cricket figure W. G. Grace[1]) to seek out the Holy Grail. They are led to a castle controlled by the French where they believe the Grail is being held. After being insulted in mangled Franglais and failing to invade the castle in a Trojan Rabbit, Arthur decides that they must go their separate ways to seek out the Grail.
