I've read that George Harrison made a cameo apppearance in "The Life of Brian". I've only seen the movie once a long time ago so I don't remember seeing him in it. I'll have to check it out again.

"The Holy Grail" is definitely in my top 10 movies of all time. Like most fans of Python I can practically recite the movie word-for-word.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I think he also made a cameo in "The Rutles" as a reporter.

"Life of Brian" and their other movies are all fine (especially "Holy Grail"); but it's the TV series that was my Real Love - so anarchic, and they didn't have to worry about such unimportant aspects as "story" or "character".

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

I LOVE Monty Python! They're hilarious! Mr. Sun King, a good place to start are the movies with a "plot": The Holy Grail and Life of Brian. Then watch the equally funny Meaning of Life. YouTube has thousands of clips from their TV show, Flying Circus. I recommend "Dead Parrot" and "Spam", but they are all funny.

SPAM! I absolutely love that skit, mainly because I hate spam. I've always fancied the Self- Defense skit on Flying Circus. But definitely watch Flying Circus.

A good way to get into Monty Python is watching A Now For Something Completely Different. It' just a bunch of thier skits put into a movie for American audiences. Literal tears in my eyes the first time I saw it.

Holy Grail and Life of Brian are great. I loved Life of Brian because it became satirical of religion while still keeping its comedic charm. Plus, "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" is just a great song.

I loved the Rutles as well. They were able to get Mick Jagger, Paul Simon, Ronnie Wood, Dan Ackyrnd, John Belushi, and of course our dear old George a-hard-days-night-george-10. Definitely a funny movie.

The Pirate Song

 

The Beatles + Monty Python = Pure Awesome

 

PennyLane: I also DON'T LIKE SPAM!!!

I've never seen And Now For Something Completely Different.

 

You should watch The Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook before you watch Spam, as the Hungarian makes a cameo.

I so love this: "Don't YOU want to play a pirate?" and the ending was the best part. The first time I saw it, it seriously caught me off guard!
