Customer Review

on 29 July 2009
When a person of great fame and genius suddenly dies before his time, opportunists everywhere attempt to 'Cash In' on that tragedy.

They re-release all of his work, repackage it as 'Memorial Tributes,' and most disgustingly of all, try to pawn off the substandard and mediocre rubbish that he would never have agreed to publish whilst he was alive.

Monet, Renoir, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, even Spike Milligan; it seems to happen whenever a great artist dies. So in the end, I should really have known better when I decided to buy this DVD.

In summary, it is a collection of American University appearances, recorded on a substandard 1980's video camera; basically consisting of Mr Chapman sitting on stage and talking to a room full of 'Monty Python' fans. And like a book of posthumously published scripts which I borrowed from the library, it was definitely not his best work.

In short then, the opportunists would try to sell an artist's shopping lists if they thought that it might turn a quick buck. Graham Chapman was the life, the soul and the very spirit of 'Monty Python.' And ignoring this rubbish, we honour his memory by remembering him as such.
