Monty Python’s “And Now For Something Completely Different” [Movie]

1971. Colour lithograph, 75.9 x 32.8cm. Repaired minor tears and creases. Linen-backed.

Text includes “Stupendous! Spectacular! Incomparable! Unimaginable! [Printer] Robert Burton Pty Ltd, Sydney.” The poster also lists the following films: The 1971 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, The 1970 Melbourne Cup, and The 1947 Bong Bong Ladies Auxiliary Tree Felling Contest. And Now for Something Completely Different is a sketch comedy film based on the TV series Monty Python’s Flying Circus. It consists of 90 minutes of sketches from the first two series, recreated without an audience to introduce the group’s humour to an American audience.

The name ‘Monty Python’ was created by some members of the comedy group, as they “claimed it sounded like a really bad theatrical agent, the sort of person who would have brought them together, with John Cleese suggesting ‘Python’ as something slimy and slithery, and Eric Idle suggesting ‘Monty.’” Ref: Wiki.
