Python animator draws the crowds

He's best known as Python's eccentric animator and he's no stranger to drawing the crowds. And at 73, Terry Gilliam shows little sign of slowing down.And at 73, Terry Gilliam shows little sign of slowing down.

Here he is pictured at a London red carpet event with his gloriously-attired wife, costume designer Maggie Watson, who wore something completely different in the shape of purple tights and red shoes.

The dark-suited US film director, actor and screenwriter was at the West End gathering for a BFI Fellowship meal in honour of fellow American Al Pacino.

Celebrity spotters and photographers turned up in force to usher in Gilliam and other stars through the doors of the Corinthia Hotel to honour the hardman actor's achievements.

Gilliam was joined by actors Richard E. Grant, Sir Ian Holm and John Hurt, and movie all-rounder Steven Berkoff.

Pacino was honoured with the fellowship, which is the film institute's leading accolade at last Wednesday's bash (September 24).
