The Saturday Screen Shot #9

I'm in need of a good laugh this week, so I thought I'd turn to some of my favourite comedians to provide the screenshot.  

Shot from the Screen: Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Screenshot: King Arthur battling the Black Knight

Shot from the Scene: The Black Knight refuses to stand aside for King Arthur to pass and so, reluctantly, Arthur has a sword fight with him. After literally disarming the Knight, Arthur believes the battle to be won. But the Black Knight claims "It's just a flesh wound!" and starts kicking him instead. When Arthur chops both his legs off too, the Knight then offers to "call it a draw".  John Cleese is wonderful as the manic and persistent Black Knight and Graham Chapman's reasonable King Arthur becomes more frustrated and despairing as the scene progresses. Just one of many brilliant moments in a really funny film full of memorable scenes
