You are watching: Monty python and the holy grail script


This is the official "Unoffical" Monty Python and also The holy Grail screenplay.

This document contains the manuscript as it was on march 20 1974, before filming took

place. There are numerous minor differences from what appears here and also what

ended increase on the screen.

This file also contains cut scenes and also lines native the film.

I tried to keep as lot of the screenplay as possible but the isn"t

easy to cross out a section and also pencil in brand-new dialogue, in ASCII.

Any scene or dialogue the was crossed out starts with a "" before it.

Anything Penciled in has a "", I likewise put cut information before penciled in.

What is interesting about a screenplay is to view what they threw the end and

what "Catch Phrases" to be literally penciled in. The factor I keyed in

this record was resulted in by me downloading existing transcript going

around internet. It was an remarkable job... I wouldn"t desire to have actually attempted

what that did... But it wasn"t in a great script format and I didn"t like how

direction was created in. Because I had the real screenplay ns thought...

What the hell!

After This I arrangement to vital in "Monty Python"s second Film" the is the first draft

of the holy Grail. That is the script that at some point got canabalized into

sketches for the fourth season that Python. The Is sill fairly different and also well

worth a read. Is everyone interested in it?????

Oh yes... I will tension this fact once more... THIS IS A SCREENPLAY... So

don"t yell at me if a heat is paraphrased in the film... This is what was

written prior to filming took place and also it is still fairly accurate.

Enough of this...

P.S. To AHH: DON"T YOU recognize WHO CONNIE BOOTH OR CAROL CLEVELAND IS?!?!?!

AND DON"T YOU know WHAT GRAHAM CHAPMAN sounds LIKE?!?!?! Sorry ns just had to

say that... As the complete and also total bastard that ns am.
