MISCELLANEOUS PYTHON TRIVIA
by Hans ten Cate
Thursday, 5 October 1995
  • Despite the Pythons tendency to dress up like women, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" only featured one performance in drag, and that was a brief one - Terry Jones played the constitutional peasaNt woman out scrounging for filth.
  • The opening shots of the Grim Reaper dinner party scene in "Meaning of Life" are a shot-by-shot homage to Ingmar Bergman's "Seventh Seal" (as is the Grim Reaper character himself).
  • When the Pythons celebrated their twentieth anniversary with a party in December 1989, it was held in the same hall in London where the Mr. Creosote scenes were filmed for "Meaning of Life."
