10 Things You Didn’t Know about Time Bandits

The 1981 movie Time Bandits was written, produced, and directed by Monty Python's Terry Gilliam. Unlike his later fantasies Brazil and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, this film was aimed at children, and those who were kids in the 1980s remember the utterly wacky Time Bandits fondly.

10. The script somehow ended up in Sean Connery’s hands and he was interested.

Connery wasn’t even thought of for the script aside from the fact that the part of Agammemnon need to be played by ‘someone looking like Sean Connery’. It was kind of a happy accident that he said yes.

9. The director accidentally jumped off a scaffolding and landed on Shelly Duvall.

To be fair he was trying to show his actors what not to do while hitting their mark, he just wasn’t entirely successful in his direction.

If the movie was a part of your childhood, and even if it wasn't, you'll want to learn more about the making of Time Bandits at TVOM.

Pretty lame trivia from TVOM. Everything in the list is lifted and rather poorly paraphrased from the Internet Movie Database. It would have been better if the author, and I use that term loosely, included the names of the actors. It would also have been better if the had not lifted the "10 things" in the order in which they appeared in the INDB trivia for this movie.
