Connie Booth's first acting role. She had originally just agreed to play a small part in one sketch, but took on several more roles after the actress who had originally been cast pulled out at the last minute. See more »
This film from 1968, a year before Python did its first show, is hilarious. It was done by John Cleese, Connie Booth, Graham Chapman, and Michael Palin, all From Monty Python's flying Circus. There Python Genius for comedy shines in this film. Additional material was provided by the hugely funny Marty Feldman. Wile a few of the Sketches are a little slow, many are some of the funniest ever recorded. Some Particularly good sketches are the ones with the old women, the airline one ("The wings are not on fire"), and the last sketch on the tape, to name few. Defiantly worth a look for any Python Fan, or for any one looking for a good laugh.
