Adventures written by Rudolph Erich Raspe in 1785 became an instant best seller and was. Don't read this book Do see the marvellous film which I have watched so many times that I virtually know it by heart Here are some of my favourite bits of dialogue Baron Munchausen meets the Right Ordinary Horatio Jackson leader of the beseiged cityJACKSON You appear to have a rather weak grasp of realityMUNCHAUSEN Your reality sir is lies and balderdash and I am pleased to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever The Baron has persuaded the theatre company to build him a hot air ballon entirely constructed from women's underwearFIRST ACTOR It's like the dawning of a new age Of beautiful intimate fingsSECOND ACTOR He's going to kill himself you knowTHIRD ACTOR Yes but what a way to go The Baron and his followers have tied a rope around one end of the moon and are trying to lower themselves back down to EarthMUNCHAUSEN This is just the kind of thing that no one ever believes The Baron has been introduced to the Goddess Venus played by a radiant young Uma ThurmanMUNCHAUSEN Madame I am overwhelmed Your beauty surpasses even that of the late Catherine the Great of Russia whose hand in marriage I once had the honour to declineVENUS Baron you flatter meMUNCHAUSEN Gazing at her d├ęcolletage Not one jot Madame Not one tittle The Sultan is about to cut off the Baron's headSULTAN Any famous last wordsMUNCHAUSEN Not yetSULTAN puzzled Not yet Is that famous After an exceptionally confusing reversal of fantasy and realityMUNCHAUSEN And that is merely one of the many times I have died An experience I do not hesitate most heartily to recommendI was interested to discover this morning that the Baron's Incomparable Servants are in fact taken from the Brothers Grimm's Sechse kommen durch die ganze Welt There can be no reasonable doubt about it in particular Berthold's race to Vienna and back which ends up getting the Baron a free haircut is directly adapted from the story

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen The Illustrated Novel Applause Screenplay SeriesHailed as a comic sensation in the satirical spirit of Gulliver's Travels and Tom Jone. While the movie is a classic and is wonderful the book did nothing for me A book is meant to surpass movies; to stimulate parts of the imagination that visual media can't touch This book did none of thatit was a very strict retelling of whatever was on the screen It was like Gilliam and McKeown spent an afternoon with a few pints sitting on the couch watching the movie and writing down everything they saw A much simplier and less costlier solution would be to just watch the wonderful movie

REVIEW ½ The Adventures of Baron Munchausen: The Illustrated Novel (Applause Screenplay Series) ↠ Adventures written by Rudolph Erich Raspe in 1785 became an instant best seller and was hailed as a comic sensation in the satirical spirit of Gulliver's Travels and Tom Jones Terry GilliaS Terry Gilliam has now resurrected the Baron and his comrades in entirely new adventur.
