There are never before seen sketches have surfaced of the legendary British komediegroep Monty Python. The never used scenarios were found in the personal archive of ex-Python Michael Palin, the British newspaper The Times discovered.
In boxes with material that Palin last year at The British Library gave, were dozens of scenarios are being discovered that have never been used. With that material are also the scripts for two skits that were intended for the movie “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (1975). A first sketch is about as good as a parched man in a desert in the wild west binnenstrompelt in a saloon, which is ultimately a bookstore turns out to be. A second sketch is about a “pink knight”.
“Sometimes these things happen,” responds Palin to The Times. “I can’t think why we this material is not used. ‘The Holy Grail’ has gradually taken shape, and originally we had many more ideas than those on the screen are up, because there had to be a story to be followed.”
The sketches will later this month can be viewed in The British Library. Than fifty booklets with notes about the films ‘The Holy Grail’ and ‘The Life of Brian” will be displayed. It turns out that both movies are drastically different from the original design. So it was for ‘The Holy Grail’ is a rather conventional end, but the Pythons chose eventually for the movie abruptly stop.
