Remember when they blew up an irreplaceable 145-year-old, $40,000 guitar in one of Tarantino's movies?

The Martin Guitar Museum loaned an 1870 Martin guitar for the filming of The Hateful 8 and Kurt Russell completely destroyed it

The world of video games has many things in common with films and series: strange and unrepeatable stories. At VidaExtra we love and share it every day, especially when it comes to gaming. However, there are many related films that deserve attention.

The main story of this post belongs to a movie by Quentin Jerome Tarantino: Hate 8 (2016), one of the director's final parts with ÉOnce upon a time in Hollywood (2019) and Django Unchained (2012). His photography is usually full of curiosities and stories worth telling, but in this case he excelled like never before…and he knew it at all times.

Communications failure and a 145-year-old guitar

Hate 8 It is a film that remains engraved in the minds of everyone who watched it. The reason is that it is set almost entirely in a one-room inn and is set in the Far West, specifically after the end of the American Civil War (1861 and 1865). More or less during the time Red Dead Redemption 2 is set.

The cast is great: Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Channing Tatum. Plus, Tarantino himself has a role. And one of the actors in this cast is responsible for breaking an irreplaceable 145-year-old guitar… although it's fair to say he didn't do it intentionally.

The story behind this event is interesting and fun and could be a board game. Cluedo. Let's put context: Martin Guitar Museum (Archaeology Museum) loaned for photography Hate 8 Martin guitar from 1870. The film showed a 145-year-old relic worth $40,000. What happened to cause an actor to destroy this irreplaceable piece?

The scene that interests us takes place after John Roth (Kurt Russell) and Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) arrive at Minnie's hardware store. And there the events continue. At one point in the film, Daisy asks permission to pick up the guitar and sing an Australian folk song called Jim Jones in Botany Bay (1907).


At the end of the song, John Roth takes the guitar from him, announces the end of the music, and slams the instrument against one of the wooden poles. One hit is enough to completely destroy him. We all saw, without knowing it, how the actor destroyed a very valuable artifact and it seems that the only person who noticed it was Jennifer Jason Leigh herself.

Audio director Mark Olano revealed to SSNInsider That it should never happen like this. The scene was for Jennifer to play the song with the original guitar and pause/cut to replace it with a regular song before Kurt completely ruined it.

Well, somehow the connection with Kurt fell through, so when you see Jennifer's surprised reaction on stage, you know it's real. […] Tarantino was in the corner of the room with an amused grin on his lips, because he thought he had achieved something great by performing that scene.

I encourage you to watch the end of the video again and notice the horrified face Jennifer makes when Kurt hits her with the pole. Now we know he wasn't acting, it was pure terror. And it seems like Tarantino somehow had something to do with this masterstroke. The scene has become history.

But it doesn't end here! Museum director Dick Bott told the media to hesitate (via tires) They did not know how the guitar was destroyed until after the report:

We're told it was an accident on set. We assumed a scaffold or something had fallen on him. […] The script said the guitar was to be violently smashed, and somehow no one told the actor that it was an extremely valuable asset, a completely irreplaceable artifact for the Martin Museum. […] We were reimbursed for the insurance value, but it's not about the money. It's about preserving American musical history and heritage.

As a result of this scene, the museum announced that it would no longer loan the guitars under any circumstances. However, the crime had already been committed and the scene of the incident occurred Hate 8 Real: The guitar breaking has real value, Kurt does it very calmly, and Jennifer's reaction couldn't be more real.
