Though he's a famous cinematographer, his daylight outdoor work in "Blazing
Saddles" was poor. In watching Blu-ray films, of all eras, I've noticed the
indoor lighting is almost always much superior to the outdoor (qv, "Bridge
on the River Kwai"). This isn't surprising -- you have full control of the
lighting on a set.
