According to a 1991 broadcast of a British radio-interview program called "Music By...", John Barry's rejected musical score for this movie actually pleased Executive Producer and Director John Huston, who had asked the composer to go in "a more contemporary direction" that people wouldn't expect that for a nineteenth century period movie. As Barry recalled, it was Executive Producer Walter Mirisch who disliked the result, and had it dropped.
