As a global hit musical, "Spamalot" was a spin off from the 1975 movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and enjoyed long runs on Broadway in NY as well as other cities around the world, and is still playing in London's West End, but a British court on Friday July 5, 2013, has awarded the producer of the Holy Grail movie, Mark Forstater, as bigger share of royalties from the Python troupe.

    Holy hand grenade! There just may be a new Python in town. Mark Forstater, the producer of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, has won a lawsuit giving him a share of the royalties to Monty Python's Spamalot, which is based on the film. His case included the claim of an agreement that for the purposes of merchandise and spinoffs related to the movie, he would be treated as a seventh Python. Seeing as how he's not an ex-Python and he's not dead yet, courts granted his request against claims by the other Pythons. Yeah, but can they tell us the air-speed velocity of a laden swallow?
