The first feature film by the Monty Python team is a mock heroic tale set in medieval Britain with lots of silly things going on besides. In a series of sketches and animations, the Pythons recount scenes from the Grail legend in which the knights forsake their chorus line can-can dancing in Camelot for a higher aim. Typically, the Pythons set-up a 'historical' tale which is really a take on the modern world. Memorable scenes, like Graham Chapman's King Arthur battling with John Cleese's Black Knight until the latter is reduced limb by limb down to a speaking stump of a torso, capture both the hilarity and grotesque nature of brutality. In scene after scene King Arthur's men are led a merry chase through the countryside, encountering life on many different social levels. This screenplay edition contains just the script and is supplemented by stills from the film.
* 'It's impossible to explain the plot, which will ensure that Camelot will never be the same again ... Something in such ferociously bad taste, carried through with such blatant indelicacy, made me, I confess, quite upset - with laughter ... It should be on the National Health' The Sunday Telegraph * 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a marvellously particular kind of lunatic endeavour ... it manages to send up the legend of the Grail, courtly love, fidelity, bravery, costume movies, movie violence and ornithology' The New York Times * 'Watch out for the knights that say 'Ni', the anarcho-syndicalist peasants, the killer rabbits and Gilliam's graphics' Time Out * 'Sheer comic brilliance ... leave your sense of reason at home, wave a white flag and surrender to the inspired idiocy of the Monty Python team' The Daily Express*

There is a FAR COOLER screenplay that is apparently out of print that you should search for. It's about 8.5" by 11" and includes lots of interesting extras - sketches and deleted/changed lines. I found one on another site that hosts lots of used books often for "half" cover price.
