Still shot from the movie: Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Based on a British TV show, this low-budget film about an Arthurian quest is one of those unusual cult classics that is still quoted and eluded to years after its 1975 release. Because it is full of inane situations, occasionally off-color dialogue, and gory slapstick violence, parents will need to carefully decide if the humor and antics are their family?s cup of tea.

At the beginning of the film, a group of men are collecting dead bodies for disposal. What was causing the deaths? Why was it important to get rid of the bodies so quickly?

How do the portrayals of the knights in this film compare to other stories of King Arthur’s Knights of the Round Table?
