So I've just found out that Michael Palin, at age 70 or so, rerecorded some of his narration for Monty Python and the Holy Grail, for a terrible, revisionist 5.1 mix on the new DVDs/Blu Rays, and I'm mad about it. No attempt to match the original performance either.

Also lots of overeager remixing and replacing of elements.

Hey, remember when the original mixes of Monty Python and the Holy Grail went too nuts with the sound mixing and effects, and nobody laughed until they removed literally everything?

Because they don't seem to have remembered that when someone decided to rerecord things so they could have a 5.1 mix.

Should you have a copy of the Monty Python and the Holy Grail scriptbook nearby, flip through it until you find a page of Terry Gilliam sketches. A handful of the drawings, usually the more detailed ones, should have a number by them. This is the page number of the book from which Gilliam copied the artwork.

Images in the Margins of Gothic Manuscripts by Lilian M.C. Randall (University of California Press, 1966) was Terry Gilliam’s major source of inspiration for his work on Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Martine Meuwese, in her article 'The Animation of Marginal Decorations in Monty Python and the Holy Grail' (pages 45 to 58 of the Arthuriana, Volume 14 Number 4, Winter 2004), identified a few page numbers of images which appear in the film, including:

Page 3 - an angel with organ
Page 52 - a watery tendril
Page 68 - laden knights
Page 112 - a monk hearing confession
Page 212 - castles
Page 433 - nude trumpeters
Page 543 - more nude trumpeters
Page 612 - an angel
Page 633 - the house that appears throughout the seasons
Page 654 - a duck
Page 672 - the famous chalice of the poster

I noticed that difference as well back when the DVD came out. Very unnecessary.

Terence Bayler has passed at age 86. In a long career the actor appeared in Monty Python-related projects like Rutland Weekend Television, on Doctor Who, in Roman Polanski's Macbeth, and in the first Harry Potter film.

Monty Python legend Terry Jones is ill. This crowdfund would publish the last in his trilogy of children's books - the other two are now out of print but not hard to find for cheap. All of his work is wonderful.
