Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl
Short during 1980, this show offers a sense of the Pythons’ rock-star status.
Dir Terry Hughes (live footage), Ian MacNaughton (film footage)
With John Cleese, Michael Palin, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones
Filmed during their four-day run at the Bowl in 1980, and released after the huge success of Life of Brian, this film gives a sense of the rock-star status Python had achieved worldwide, with an adoring and vocal crowd interacting wherever possible. Alongside Python (and pre-Python) live sketches is some filmed material from the German TV specials.
