Monty Python's Life of Brian

A brilliant parody from the British comedy group Monty Python about the history of (not Jesus but the boy born right next door to The Manger, Brian). A Terry Jones directed film from 1979 that has since gained cult status. What many fans don't know is that this movie might never have happened if not for the financial assistance of George Harrison (of The Beatles).

  • During the Mr.Papadopolous scene (played by George Harrison), Michael Palin's son Tom appears uncredited. (Tom Palin was the only Python child that wanted to be in the film.) Michael Palin later joked that at least his son would be able to tell people he appeared in a scene with both the Pythons and a Beatle.
  • In the interview section of Monty Python's Flying Circus: Live at Aspen (1998) (TV), John Cleese confides that, since there were massive protests against the movie from all denominations of Christianity, he would joke with Michael Palin: "We've brought them all together for the first time in 2000 years!"
