Monty Python and the Holy Grail Turns 35

Monty-PythonIt was 35 years ago, on April 3, 1975, that comedy troupe, Monty Python, made their big screen debut in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Starring John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam (who also provided the wonderfully wacky animations), the film achieved cult status almost overnight, and remains one of the most beloved comedies of all time.

As you may already know, the film follows the quest of King Arthur, to assemble a team of able knights to join him at the round table, and help him find the fabled Holy Grail. Along the way, audiences were introduced to the “Knights Who Say Nee,” the never-one-to-give-up (and eventually quadriplegic) Black Knight, and an unforgettable bridge troll. Let’s take a look at one of the many classic clips from the film.

As we celebrate the anniversary of one of the most often quoted films in history, we thought we would ask you to share your favorite lines from this iconic film. There are literally so many to choose from that your quest should be a simple one. And after you are done, perhaps you could find us a shrubbery?
