+ Michael Palin’s 8mm Movies #1
This footage was shot in Jersey in autumn 1971. ‘I had a morning off and took film of the preparation for a sequence in which John Cleese as [highwayman] Moore holds up a passing stagecoach,’ says Palin. ‘Looking back now, I realise that the unique aspect of filming I captured that day was its boredom. In that way it is, at least, an honest bit of footage and remains almost the only movie material of Python at work in those early days of the TV series.’
