Black Knight scene, taken from Monty Python and The Holy Grail. Terry Jones picked this as part of his Top 10 Monty Python Movie Moments for Esquire Magazine -
"This is John [Cleese] and Terry Gilliam in the suits. They actually had to learn how to sword-fight with those helmets on, which is incredibly hard to do. We'd run out of money by the time we shot this sequence so there was only a crew of about four people, and it took us about a week to shoot it. It actually didn't work—the part where Graham [Chapman] first confronts John—until we added the shots of John just standing there, not responding, and that did the trick. And believe it or not we brought in various people to dub John's voice, because for some reason we thought John's voice wasn't right. I don't know why, because in the end we decided to use his voice, and of course it's perfect."
