Monty Python <-> Mt Buffalo bizarre link

5:13:05 PM
Home in bed sick with fever, not much to do but watch old DVDs to pass the time... I was working through Monty Python and during the "The Holy Grail" I was stunned to see a picture of the Mt Buffallo gorge !! At first I thought I was hallucinating.. but now I'm certain it's there. Just before the bit with Brave Sir Robin. The gum trees in the foreground confirm it's not in merrie old england.

Any die-hard Monty Python fans may wish to check for themselves...

Yes I also have Holy Grail on DVD and have pointed out the Buffalo scene to all and sundry for many years now. The view is unmistakeable. Love to know the story behind it.

Yes indeed; Brave Sir Robin, who bravely fled. Think of the climbers back in the '50s who looked up at that view and thought "Why not?". There was an article about their ascent in the VCC Fiftieth Anniversary publication. And yes, I was stunned too when I saw it at the movies all those years ago.

So you'll have to send them an update:

It was a still photo and therefore wouldn't qualify as a "shooting location".

Gee BA I think you're right - in my mind the zoom in the scene was confused with actual motion & now I have the DVD out to check. For everyone's benefit here's a screen capture:

I'd be ready to bet the story behind it is pure randomness. They throw stuff like that in to make it a little more bizarre and inconsistant. It's not an obvious thing but it's there for the interest of those few who'd find it a talking point. They were clearly correct... That's what makes them such good movie writers!
