““In the hospital George asked the nurses to put fish and chips in his IV. The doctor - thinking he was delusional - said to his son “don’t worry, we have a medical name for this condition.” “Yes,” said Dhani, “humor.””
April 30th,1974, first day of filming on Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Tuesday, April 30, Ballachulish
First day of filming. Woken at 6:45. Sunshine streaming through the curtains. Into chain mail and red-cross tabard. A difficult day today - the Bridge of Death scene where Eric and I die and Lancelot is arrested by the police. Dangerous too - from what I hear. Difficult decision over Galahad’s blond wig. Instead of noble and youthful, I look like I should be serving in a supermarket. End of Galahad as a blond.
