Trivia

In the original “Time Bandits” script, King Agamemnon was introduced as “the warrior took off his helmet, revealing someone that looked exactly like Sean Connery”. To Terry Gilliam’s surprise, the script ended up in Connery’s hands, which ended up interested in the part so his agent approached the movie crew for the role.

The footage used in “Time Bandits” during the Titanic sinking scene is actually footage from the film “A Night to Remember” (1958), adequately colorized and slowed down.
