The script was written in the Caribbean, where the Pythons hobnobbed with, among others, Keith Moon, drummer from The Who. Moon was slated to play a street prophet in the scene where Brian hides among them.

True, my tastes are eclectic. This movie is so incredibly clever and thought provoking that it's not surprising that it raised so many hackles. Plus, it's as fast paced and funny as a Marx Brothers movie without the musical breaks. You can watch it 20 times and you'll still sing at the end. Undoubtedly one of the top 10!!
