The Movie: Monty Python’s Life of Brian (1979)
What Is It?: Monty Python takes Christian dogma for a ride in a UFO, and Graham Chapman finds humanity in the eye of a storm of brilliant absurdities. He also shows his penis. Thank George Harrison, who funded the film after EMI pulled its funding because of the script’s controversial depiction of a guy a bunch of dopes think is a messiah. Chickens!
Why Today?: On this day in 1943, George Harrison is born.
