Michael Palin in The Dress, a short movie co-starring Rachel Palin. Part two(final part).
Michael Palin in The Dress. Part one.
This user uploads loads of rare interviews and treats such as long-waited Michael Palin’s The Dress and I wanted share. A real treasure, I must say, but only 20 to 300 people see his videos. Every Monty Python fans, be the next subscribers and help this channel.
My mother knew that there was an imaginative side that made me slightly different to the others. I’m extremely grateful that she was always there to listen to my moans. But at the same time she was very practical. She used to say to me, ‘Oh Michael’, meaning ‘just get on with it!
— Michael Palin
One of the few times Palin got cross was when he was interviewed about The Missionary by two young Oxford graduates.
….’It struck me that the style of humour was out-of-date and rather slapstick.’
'I'm sorry you thought so,' said Palin
'That scene when you explain to your wife what a fallen woman is', said the interviewer, 'and she asks if it is someone who has broken their ankle. How could you put that in the film?’
'Oh dear', said Palin. 'I'm sorry, It's just that I've got to go.' Palin made to go, but suddenly turned round. 'I mean, how can you ask a thing like that? What do you mean, how can I put it into the film? Because I happened to think it was funny. You didn't, fair enough. But don't come here and ask me how can I dare put something like that in a film. Honestly, that's te most pissing awful thing I've ever heard. If you didn't like the film, you didn't like the film. But don't say, 'How can you put it in there?'….
Again Palin made a go, but again suddenly turned round. ‘Because I’m an imbecile, because I’m no good at writing fucking comedy, that’s why I put it in there.’ Palin stormed out of his own house. But then turned round and.. ‘Right, I’m off. Cheerio. I hope your thing comes out really well.’
motherfucking Michael Palin
A sudden and not-understandable thing just stroke me…a thing called deep sadness because I saw all of these faces/scenes already.
