Something completely different: Monty Python on AM America, 1975

| | Comments (1) | TrackBacks (0)

The cast of Monty Python's Flying Circus came to America in April 1975 to promote their new movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Here they are, co-hosting on ABC's AM America, the predecessor to Good Morning America. Even if you don't care for Python, this is worth watching just to bask in the sheer seventies-ness of the set and the theme sequence -- strings, muted horns, and oboes over sunrise scenes from coast to coast. There are also a couple of news cut-ins with Peter Jennings, reporting the imminent fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Army.

It is hilarious to watch the co-host (didn't catch her name) move about the stage, because Eric Idle keeps messing with her. Eventually she winds up down in front of the desk. She appears to be taking it all in good humor, but I think it was probably irritating her. She makes some condescending remarks too, it seemed to fuel them into messing with her even more! Dig those 70's hair styles, that is certainly one thing about that decade I don't miss!
Enjoyed watching the clip, thanks for sharing!
