Immortal lines from the inimitable Monty Python team. The first feature film by the Monty Python team is a mock-heroic tale set in mediaeval Britain with lots of silly things going on besides. In a series of sketches and animations, the Pythons recount scenes from the Grail legend in which the knights forsake their chorus line can-can dancing in Camelot for a higher aim. Typically, the Pythons set-up a 'historical' tale which is really a take on the modern world. Memorable scenes, such as Graham Chapman's King Arthur battling with John Cleese's Black Knight until the latter is reduced limb by limb to a speaking stump of a torso, capture both the hilarity and grotesque nature of brutality. In scene after scene King Arthur's men are led a merry chase through the countryside, encountering life on many different social levels.

Beyond the Arthurian legend, entries cover literary metaphors, symbols, names, peoples, and places—as well as the myriad social, cultural, and historical elements that populate the film.
The Making of "It's amazing," John Cleese says in "The Python's Autobiography," "if you look at the first draft of 'Grail' how little of that appears in the movie, it's about 10 percent of the first draft. But I remember Mike and Terry reading out the coconuts thing which gave us a key to a certain approach of how to do it. In the TV series, with "The Cycling Tour," they had already played with a single sketch running the length of an entire show, so a single narrative had already been explored. But it was in fits and starts that the film's over-arching narrative which allowed for a bunch of sketches tied together became a medieval parody featuring King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. The initial draft of "Holy Grail" actually spanned centuries, with scenes set in a modern-day Harrods, where the Grail is found.
