See Jennifer Jason Leigh's Priceless Reaction When Kurt Russell Accidentally Destroys a 'Priceless' Antique Guitar on Set
Accidents happen. That's what Dick Boak, the director of the Martin Guitar Museum, reportedly thought when he was told a priceless, 145-years-old guitar - which his museum leant to be used in Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight - had been destroyed. "We were informed that it was an accident on set," Boak told guitar enthusiast site Reverb on Thursday. "We assumed that a scaffolding or something fell on it." But in reality, the destruction was a bit more deliberate - even if still accidental. "The guitar was a loner from the Martin Guitar Museum and there were six doubles made.

Kurt Russell Destroyed a Priceless Antique While Shooting 'The Hateful Eight'

Kurt Russell Destroyed a Priceless Antique While Shooting 'The Hateful Eight'
The Hateful Eight has many scenes that are painful to watch, and hard to sit through on a visceral level. The emotions run high, and the violence is rampant. This is expected from a Quentin Tarantino movie. But there is one scene in the movie that literally has stomachs turning, but not because of all the blood. As it turns out, a priceless antique was destroyed on screen. And it can never be replaced. They say pain is temporary, film is forever. We're not sure how the owners of this trashed object feel about that sentiment, though.

As it turns out, Daisy Domergue wasn't the only one shocked by John Ruth's actions when he obliterates her guitar. As it turns out, this key scene actually shows star Kurt Russell completely demolishing an irreplaceable artifact that was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum in Pennsylvania. The broken guitar, which sits beyond repair,

Martin Is Not Happy Kurt Russell Smashed Its Priceless Antique Guitar in Hateful Eight

Martin Is Not Happy Kurt Russell Smashed Its Priceless Antique Guitar in Hateful Eight
When C.F. Martin & Co. lent a priceless, 140-year-old guitar to Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight, it was on the understanding that it would be returned unharmed. Seeing that the film's script involved Kurt Russell smashing the instrument in a fit of rage, the production came up with a skillful workaround: Between shots, they would swap the guitar out with one of six replicas made precisely for that purpose. Except that isn't quite what happened. As the film's sound mixer Mark Ulano recalled this week, "Somehow that didn’t get communicated to Kurt ... Kurt shattered the antique guitar and everyone was pretty freaked out," including Jennifer Jason Leigh, whose authentic look of shock apparently delighted Tarantino. Though those involved with the production swore Martin took the loss in stride, that was apparently because the company didn't quite understand just how the guitar got destroyed.

Michael Mann on ‘Heat’ at 20, Sundance & Berlin Expand Slates, Roman Polanski on the Holocaust, and More

Dailies is a round-up of essential film writing, news bits, videos, and other highlights from across the Internet. If you’d like to submit a piece for consideration, get in touch with us in the comments below or on Twitter at @TheFilmStage.

A Mike Nichols documentary, Dazed and Confused with live commentary by Richard Linklater and Jason Reitman, and more have been added to the Sundance 2016 line-up.

As Heat turns 20, Michael Mann discusses the making of a crime drama classic with Rolling Stone:

One of the biggest scenes was the shoot-out at the end, and one of the big challenges about it is that we couldn’t do it consecutively. We could only get downtown on Saturday and Sunday. So it was six days of shooting, but we had to do it on a Saturday and Sunday, then do something else and then come back the following Saturday and Sunday to do the next section.

20 Years of Collaborating with Tarantino with Zero Adr: Production Sound Mixer Mark Ulano on The Hateful Eight

Few directors this side of Joseph Mankiewicz are as attentive to the clear, crisp presentation of dialogue as Quentin Tarantino, giving the always important role of production sound mixer even more weight on his sets. Since Jackie Brown in 1997, Tarantino has relied on Academy Award winner (for Titanic) Mark Ulano to capture his production sound. Tarantino’s latest, The Hateful Eight, represents some of Ulano’s finest work to date – which is saying something considering that he has over a hundred credits to his name, including The Master, Iron Man and Inglourious Basterds (for which he was nominated for another Oscar).
