John Cleese – from the film The Magic Christian


The Magic Christian was filmed over 40 – years ago. The lead actors were Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr. Peter Sellers played an eccentric millionaire by the name of Sir Guy Grand who spends his days seeing what various people would be willing to do for his money. Ringo Star plays Peter Sellers adopted son, Youngman Grand, in the movie who helps him in his escapades in regards to giving away his money. The following scene includes a very young John Cleese in one of his first films. If you have the time I would recommend you watch the entire film some day. It’s a “B” quality type of film and one needs to look at it from the time period (1969) it was filmed in, however it had lots of great black comedy in it that is worth the price of admission. Enjoy
