As I recall it, Branagh's Stratford performance was remarkable largely
for the vigour with which, each evening, he hurled himself backwards
from the battlements of Harfleur. It was a drop of about 15 feet. The
audience's main concern was whether, and to what extent, he had managed
to arrange insurance cover.
