Plot[edit]

Cast[edit]

Legacy[edit]

The studio logos, opening credits and a brief portion of the opening scene is added to the start of Monty Python and the Holy Grail on its special edition DVD. The clip ends with a sputtering, unseen "projectionist" realising he has played the wrong film. A "slide" then appears urging the audience to wait while the projectionist changes reels.
