Uncovering the gems of Terry Gilliam's personal archive - from pre-Python days through Python to his feature films and beyond...
Marvellous blog! Discovered via Cartoon Brew. So happy you are doing this. I maintain the Ronald Searle blog and got to know him in the last few years of his life. Do you know if your Dad is inspired by Searle's cartoons?
Aren't you the one who told Jonathan Pryce "Put it on big boy. I won't look at your willy." in Brazil when you were about 5 years old?Now there's a line I bet Shirley Temple never got to say in any of her movies.:-)

Thank you so much for all of this hard work and for sharing these wonderful bits with us!
I absolutely adore Imaginarium - it's just a shame it took 24 years for Terry and Charles McKeown to work together - and that the production suffered from the loss of Heath and it's producer, William Vince. But it stands as one of my absolute favourite movies of all time (like Baron Munchausen) and I'm not ashamed to say that the ending brings a tear to my eye each and every time I watch it. Not just for the story, but for the love that so clearly went into making this film against all the adversity that came with doing so.
I am amazed, thanks so much for taking the initiative to do this! It is MUCH appreciated!
Hey thanks so much for doing this. It's great. Can't wait for the book and maybe an exhibition?
seriously!!!! keep up the great work!Terry is KING!!
Thank you for sharing! Please publish the archives in books!
Thank you for doing this, Holly! I can't express how much I appreciate the time and effort you are putting in to make sure this material is shared.
I found this blog via Cartoon Brew, and having been a Monty Python fan since I was nine years old, I just HAVE to follow it.As it happens, I've just put up a review of Time Bandits, the first of his "Trilogy of Imagination" films, on my own blog, and I'll also be doing Brazil and Baron Munchausen in the coming weeks. I admire these films for their witty dialogue, biting satire, mind-blowing visuals and cinematography, and your father's fight with the studios to get them made and released HIS way. To get a glimpse at the thought process behind these movies, as well as his Python cartoons and his earlier works, is a very rare privilege indeed.I look forward to what else you dig up from his archives, and I hope the book will be published in America once you've made it.
found your blog via theverge.com . nice to hear about your endeavour.just a small note - i think you ought to change the font & increase font size. your posts are tiny! something like calligraph, garamond, old english, papyrus etc. with bigger size.plus perhaps a different background. something that feels more timeless than books.
I'm so enthusiastic about this blog! Thank you thank you than kyou!!!
Thanks for this - I'm really enjoying it.
Thank so much, I love Terry's work.
