I understand that Eshkeri and Lewis have now entered into into a post hoc financial arrangement, though, sadly, Lewis's name will not be added to the credits. Yes, I agree with you completely about the music in the 1974 film.
Moving on to the the 2016 film. I found it very difficult to watch end to end, because there were so many times when I just wanted to stop, not because the story departed so much from the original, but because, again and again, the film seemed to be diverging from the spirit of Ransome's book. In the end I did seeing the film in its entirety, but only by seeing it in three or four separate sessions.
There is a good review of the 2016 film on the video blog Projector which I thought was very even-handed.
