The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen

The Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a 1988 film directed by Terry Gilliam, starring John Neville[?], Sarah Polley[?], Eric Idle, Jonathan Pryce, Oliver Reed[?], Uma Thurman, Robin Williams and a great many more.

Baron Munchausen is a character from the The Surprising Adventures Of Baron Munchausen (or Baron Münchhausen's Narrative of his Marvellous Travels) by Rudolf Erich Raspe - a collection of tall stories published in 1785, based on the German adventurer Karl Friedrich von Münchhausen, but with many debts to earlier works. The tales were adapted and re-published by Gottfried August Bürger[?] in 1786 as Wunderbare Reisen zu Wasser und zu Lande, Feldzüge und lustige Abenteuer des Freyhernn von Münchhausen and became much more popular in this edition.

The stories was also made into a film in 1911 (Les Aventures de baron de Münchhausen), 1943 (Münchhausen) and 1961 (Baron Prásil).
