From the box:
…they didn’t make history, they stole it!
This adventure-fantasy-comedy is a wildly imaginative trip to a new dimension in time and space crammed with humor, action and spectacular special effects. A young time traveler (Craig Warnock) encounters Napoleon, Robin Hood and King Agamemnon, as well as the sinking of the Titanic, in this spaced-out romp through the heavens and history, produced and directed by Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam. The musical score by ex-Beatle George Harrison adds to the excitement of castles, legends, battles between good and evil and the capricious rewriting of history.
