Monty Python 1975

When the Monty Python troupe agreed to be photographed by Richard Avedon in 1975, they knew he was in a nude celebrity phase and agreed that they were going to keep their clothes on.  Before they knew it, however, Mr. Avedon, with Terry Jones' persuasive help, had them as you see above.  That's Mr. Jones at right with his legs in the air.  John Cleese, alas, is nowhere to be seen.



  1. Nude in shoes is funny.
    Maybe there was a vicious rabbit and Cleese knew to “run away”.
    (Yes, blatant Holy Grail reference).

  2. They're nude, and that's OK!-Dee Exx
