Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Factual error: In the scene inside the Cave of Death, the priest reads the 'Last Words of Joseph of Arimathea'. As he reads them, his eyes go from left to right. If it was Aramaic like he said, he would read it from right to left.

Suggested correction: The priest that reads the writing on the wall does read from right to left - his right to left, he reads from the AUDIENCE'S left to right. The camera shot is as if the audience is the wall he is reading from and so his eyes move the correct way for reading Aramaic.

His head moves from the viewer's right to left, which means he's reading left to right.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the knights are attacked by the killer rabbit outside the cave, you can see the boom mic at the top of the frame.

Trivia: Before the witch trial, you can see Sir Bedevere tying coconuts to a swallow, no doubt to test the theory people argue about elsewhere in the film.
