So what you're saying is that having a swash-buckling score would have instantly improved the score, whether or not it actually worked in the film (because I don't feel that it particularly would in this situation, with both mediums having no further purpose than to entertain, and both succeeding in that perfectly)? If not, then I'm not quite sure why criticizing because of the lack of a stereotypical sound is necessary. It just seems awfully close-minded.
