Join John Cleese and the cast of Monty Python and the Holy Grail on location in Scotland
Nobody expects the Spanish inquisition - except perhaps the Monty Python cast and crew, seen here on location at Doune Castle, Scotland, shooting Monty Python and the Holy Grail in 1974, with John Cleese’s drily-delivered comments overdubbed into Spanish for international viewers. Fetch the comfy chair.
