The movie's humor reminded producer Patricia Casey of the Keystone Kops: no holds barred, outrageous, preposterous, daredevil, zany, violent fun. Casey said: "It's the kind of thing the English do very well. They're so free, they create a fantastic situation, inject a few serious home truths about sex or pompous attitudes, then tear it down." Producer Patricia Casey, aka Pat Casey, was an American citizen footloose in London and had the time of her life making this movie: "We've nothing to compare with it in the States. It's so brilliantly 'visual' that anybody who enjoys laughing, anywhere in the world, will appreciate it". See more »

In this picture, there are forty-seven people. None of them can be seen. In this film, we hope to show you how not to be seen. This is Mr E.R. Bradshaw of Napier Court, Black Lion Road, London, SE14. He cannot be seen. Now I'm going to ask him to stand up. Mr Bradshaw, will you stand up, please?
[Mr Bradshaw stands up and is shot]
This demonstrates the value of not being seen.

Containing various skits from the first two years of their famous wacky show, "And Now for Something Completely Different" was Monty Python's Flying Circus' first movie. Everyone knows the Dead Parrot, the Lumberjack Song, and such things. They must have just cracked up writing this stuff.
If absolutely nothing else, this movie (or their show) reminds us what humor should entail. If you've never seen any of Monty Python's work, this should explain it all to you, although you ought to be prepared to die laughing.
So remember, always use Crelm toothpaste!
