Opening to Monty Python’s Life of Brian 1980 VHS [WCI Home Video]

Tape distributor: WCI Home Video [Orion Pictures] | Original pressing [ULTRA RARE] | No bloody print date! | Catalog number: OR-2003

My final eBay tape until Christmas; voted by the British Film Institute as the greatest comedy ever filmed in the UK. And they do speak correctly; “He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!”

1. FBI warning screen [early black background]
3. 1980 Orion Pictures logo [the Constellation with centered byline; Great Scott, look at this quality?! Did WB actually make an effort in making a print exclusively for video (the film originally opened with the “Splitting Rectangles”, Orion’s first logo). We positively don’t blame the Pythons for this lol.
3. Prolouge [The Nativity]
4. Theme song [It sounds reminiscent of a Bond theme, more in the John Barry territory].
