GRAHAM CHAPMAN'S SCRIPT FOR MONTY PYTHON'S LIFE OF BRIAN AND PRESS RELEASE DRAFT
A script for Monty Python's New Film, later titled Monty Python's Life of Brian, with "Graham's" written on the first page, as well as a draft of a press release used to counter the negative publicity the comedy troupe received from religious groups. The press release, reads in part, "we would like to correct certain misconceptions we feel that you have about the film and which may be due to the fact that you have not had the chance to see the film before forming your view about it." The 139-page script, printed on light blue paper, begins with a seven page scene about sheep that was not included in the final version of the film.
