Monty Python and the Holy Grail
The Black Knight Scene
Clip Description
The Black Knight is a fictional character who appears in a scene of the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. As his name suggests, he is a black knight who guards a "bridge" (in reality a short plank of wood) over a small stream, (which could have been easily stepped over by King Arthur) for unknown reasons. Although supremely skilled in swordplay, he suffers from unchecked overconfidence and a staunch refusal never to give up.
Movie Description
King Arthur and his knights embark on a low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many obstacles and interesting characters along the way.
