April 30th,1974, first day of filming on Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Tuesday, April 30, Ballachulish

First day of filming. Woken at 6:45. Sunshine streaming through the curtains. Into chain mail and red-cross tabard. A difficult day today - the Bridge of Death scene where Eric and I die and Lancelot is arrested by the police. Dangerous too - from what I hear. Difficult decision over Galahad’s blond wig. Instead of noble and youthful, I look like I should be serving in a supermarket. End of Galahad as a blond.

…Camera broke midway through first shot.
