Discovery of the day: 19 July 2012

Came across these tiny cut-out pieces for the opening titles of Monty Python's Flying Circus.  Hand drawn, hand painted and hand cut-out by Mr Gilliam himself!

  2. Some years ago, when I was avidly collecting everything Python, I spoke to a guy who had slides of all the FC cutouts. He got them for some production, and later had them scanned to (digital) files. I still have his email and phone number if you're interested (easy for quick reference for example).

    1. Wow - who is this guy!? I'd love to get in touch with him and find out if he still has the slides. Thanks.

    2. It probably isn't wise to post his contact information here, but if you send me an email (themontypythonmuseum at gee ml. dot com) I will let you know.
