Life of Brian
Meaning of Life
There's a story that came out recently about the banning of Life of Brian.
It turns out that one of the actresses in the film (I think she played something to do with the People's Popular Front of Judea (or was it the Judean People's Popular Front?). Anyway, she's Welsh and now lives in a coastal town in Wales called Aberystwyth. She ran for the local council and eventually became mayor.
A local TV reporter realising that she'd been in the file remembered that it had been banned in the town and the ban had not been recinded.
Consequently, they got Michael Palin and Terry Jones to turn up and they had a charity screening for the first time in 30 years. There's a youtube doc here: YouTube - Monty Python in Aberystwyth (Part 1 of 3)
I'd left home when the film came out so I didn't have to travel any distance to watch it (although I remember driving to a nearby town to see Last Tango in Paris).
