I'm not laying any blame, it's just one of those things. Just means when I track down a good copy, it'll be all the sweeter.

Wasn't sure where else to put this but thought it was interesting to note. From an interview with the actor Christopher Plummer posted today to the AV Club:

The Man Who Would Be King (1975)—“Rudyard Kipling”

CP: Oh, I loved working with John Huston! What a great director. I simply loved it. I was worried about one thing, and I went to him about it. I said, “I tried so hard to get this line…” It was such an emotional line at the end, when he’s lost all control. He can’t control his character any longer, and he shows it. But there was one line… I can’t even remember what it was anymore, but it was about Carnehan, and I was having trouble with it. And John never directed, so this was the only thing he ever said to me. He said, “Just take the music out of your voice, Chris.” What an extraordinary piece of direction. Because if you just say nothing, the camera does it for you. It’s extraordinary. And it’s the only direction he ever gave me. In a later discussion, he said, “I’ve done my job, Chris. I’ve cast the play. And because I’ve cast it, I trust you. My job’s over. It’s yours now.” And that’s absolutely right.

So I had a wonderful time, and I made good friends with both Sean [Connery] and Michael [Caine]. But I thought the music was awful. John Huston had already got the composer, a man called Joseph from England who wrote the most wonderful score. He did a sort of Indian sitar music for India, and for the British a fife and drum. And that was light as a feather, and it went absolutely right with the wit and whimsy of Rudyard Kipling. But the studio came in and hired Maurice Jarre simply because he was a hot composer, and he wrote an epic score of such weight and heaviness. I think that if John Huston’s boy had done it, it would’ve been a really great film.
