“Lovingly ripped off from Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Slavishly raiding the original, mock-Arthurian screenplay, Eric Idle’s book offers a procession of old favourites: the coconut-clacking, horseless riders; the corpse that obstinately refuses to lie down; the mutinous pre-Marxist peasant who tells Arthur we are “an autonomous collective”; the flatulent Frenchman cursing “you English bed-wetting types”; the Black Knight who greets his progressive dismemberment with defiant disregard.
