another python-inspired moment!

just heard from mike myers himself that this scene in austin powers was inspired by castle antrax in holy grail. I would never have figured that out on my own, even if I have seen both movies hundreds if not thousands of times, but pretty cool! imbedding is unactivated on this one so I just give you the link:

and a random picture so the post dont look as empty

He also lived & worked on Scottish kids TV here for a time I think his father is Scots? It may have been early 80's when the MP films were coming out?

hmmm, dont know... never been watching scottish kids-tv. :P
but however, al python-films exept one was made in the 70s... (unless you count hollywood bowl, then all but 2 where made in the 70s)

Miioo: Haha, I never would have guessed!
