Description

The first feature film from the Monty Python gang comes to DVD in this spectacular twin-disc set. The film itself is presented in a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Mono. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. The copious supplemental materials include a commentary track by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones that features the occasional remark from John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin. The second disc contains singalongs, a version of the film created entirely out of Legos, a pair of documentaries about the creation of the film, an interactive cast directory, artwork from the film, a photo gallery, trailers, and a bunch of other material that will keep Python fans entertained for a very long time. This is probably the definitive home video version of Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
