And Now For Something Completely Different (1971)

The stars of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, Britain’s latter-day version of the Marx Brothers, present a series of rip-roaring, rib-tickling sketches drawn from their television show.

This first movie from the Python team was intended to introduce the team’s humour to an American audience.

Funny walks and dead parrots are among the items in this compilation of skits. The production is somewhat uneven, and the film lacks any overall coherence, but there’s loads of side-splitting comedy throughout.
