The film, in which Cleese co-starred with Jamie Lee Curtis, tells of four very different characters who team up to commit armed robbery, then try to doublecross each other for the loot. It was a surprise box office hit, winning Cleese and co-writer Charles Crichton a best screenplay Oscar nomination, and also reunited him with fellow Python Michael Palin. This recent development may help soothe the pain for Python fans still reeling from the recent news of Spamalot’s closure in January (See News, 2 Jun 2008).
