Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The

Seventeen century Baron Munchausen is the hero of his own many preposterous fantasies. He starts and ends a war, flies to the moon, gets eaten by a sea monster and on and on. It's eye-catching but was a huge flop at the time. George Harrison talked Terry Gilliam into making the movie.
