An account of Baron Munchausen's supposed travels and fantastical experiences with his band of misfits.
On the first day of shooting in Almeria, Spain, Terry Gilliam managed to get 24 seconds of footage in the can. He was hampered by gusting winds and the fact that the costumes sent over from Rome were held up at the airport due to Spanish custom workers being on strike. He managed to secure 35 seconds of footage on the second day.
It wasn't just a story, was it?
At Munchausen's parade two musicians look at the camera.
Man of the match David Tomblin.
Recent prints, including home video reissues, have included a new card during the end. It has been inserted between the end title and "The End" and reads: "This is a new motion picture. This motion picture is not to be confused with the UFA/Transit/Murnau 1942/43 motion picture bearing the title 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen'." This refers to the German production of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (1943) that was made during the Nazi era and underwent restoration by the F.W. Murnau Foundation during the 1990s.
