MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL
(PG, 1975, 91 min)
From its opening multi-language titles (that sure looks like Swedish) to the closing arrest of the entire Dark Ages cast by modern-day bobbies, Holy Grail helped to define “irreverence” and became an instant classic. The Knights of the Round Table set off in search of the Holy Grail on foot, as their lackeys make clippety-clop sounds with coconut shells. A plague-ridden community, ringing with the cry of “bring out your dead,” offers its hale and hearty citizens to the body piles. Starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin.
Steven Spielberg’s INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE

Indy’s father, Dr. Henry Jones (Sean Connery) recently disappeared during his efforts.
