Overview

You never heard of this one? It might be because Romance With a Double Bass isn't a feature film at all, but a 40-minute short subject designed for British television. John Cleese, still in his Monty Python period, plays a double-bass player who woos a lovely princess (Connie Booth). Both Cleese and his beloved are left to wander the countryside naked when a thief steals their clothes. Yes, they're starkers, and the film does little to cover up the naughty bits. Though the rest of the Monty Python gang isn't around for, we are treated to amusing cameos from such master performers as Graham Crowden and Freddie Jones.
