The 1979 short film Away From it All is a Monty Python gem that sends-up those inane travelogues that we’ve all had to endure. The 13 minute film was written and narrated by the inimitable John Cleese and was shown in theaters as an opening teaser for Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Unfortunately, the hilarious flick was only available for theatrical release in the UK and in Australia, but now the rest of the world can enjoy it too.
