Footnotes

  • This was given to the vendor as a wedding present from the Pythons themselves, in 1983. The vendor worked on the film (her husband-to-be also appeared in some scenes) and she had played an instrumental part in securing US TV broadcasting for 'Monty Python's Flying Circus'.

    This costume was worn by Michael Palin and Eric Idle in the sequence when a hunting party encounters the pair, acting suspiciously and dressed as the fearsome beast.
