The mischievous Brian Cohen is mistaken for the Messiah in the Python team's brilliant satire, and he does it rather well.
The film was filmed on location in Monastir, Tunisia in 1978.
Once a fishing port, Monastir and its airport are the hubs of the tourist coast of the Gulf of Hammamet, although the town itself is quite small and away from the resorts.
The final crucifixion scene takes advantage of the surroundings of Matmata in the south of the country, the town that became Luke Skywalker's home in the Tunisian film Star Wars.
But Stan's revolutionary desire to be a woman, to be called "Loretta" and to have babies will strike a chord as gender reassignment becomes a cultural mainstream.
Terry Jones was about to shoot the film in Tunisia when EMI president Bernard Delfont finally got around to reading the script and declared that there was no way his company could finance such an atrocity.
A friend of Idle's and a Python fan agreed to mortgage his house and put up the £2 million the crew needed, a ransom that became known as "the most expensive cinema ticket" ever issued.
The world's third-largest Roman amphitheater, which towers over the small town of El Djem and is remarkably well preserved, is certainly worth a visit, but it looks nothing like the arena in the film.
In fact, the scene where Brian is recruited for the Judean Popular Front in the bloody "children's matinee" was shot in the Roman theatre in Carthage, northern Tunisia, with a lot of set construction and some matte painting.
While trying to find a way to finish the Monty Python film The Life of Brian, Eric Idle wrote an original version of the song on a Gibson J-50 guitar, using only jazz chords he had learned in a Mickey Baker class.
In November 1979, the BBC broadcast a famous televised debate between the Pythons John Cleese and Michael Palin and two pillars of the Christian establishment, journalist Malcolm Muggeridge and the then Bishop of Southwark Mervyn Stockwood.
The Pythons' satire was not directed at Jesus or his teachings but caricatured political activists, gullible crowds, the appeal of throwing stones, the complexities of Latin grammar, and the difficulties of being a bully when you have a speech impediment.
All of which seems very relevant to modern life...
Two days before the cast and crew were due to leave for Tunisia to begin shooting, EMI Films boss Bernard Delfont got cold feet and canceled the financing, fearing the film would be too controversial to turn a profit.
The hero of the hour turned out to be George Harrison, a huge Monty Python fan who had a lot of Beatles money lying around. Harrison set up a production company, HandMade Films, to make the film official, and raised $4 million of his own money.
As for Delfont, the film ends with a little inside joke directed at him, as the "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" singer is heard muttering, "I said, 'Bernie,' I said, 'they'll never get the money back.
"They actually made me rich," John Cleese said of the protesters on a U.S. talk show.
This is not official merchandise and is not intended to be passed off in any way as being an officially licensed t-shirt.
We create original designs to pay homage to pop culture references in our own unique way.
