Subject:        Branagh's Textual Choices

Hi everyone -

I am in the final throes of my thesis at the moment on Branagh's Hamlet,
and have almost completed my chapter on the texts that were used for his
screenplay and film (interestingly enough, varying texts between these
two).  Although I am top-heavy on my own theories, I am still searching
in vain for journal material on Branagh's choices.  I have had some help
from Prof.  Russell Jackson, which will prove invaluable, but in
addition I was wondering whether anyone on the list knew of any articles
or material written on Branagh's justification for using a primarily
F-based screenplay, as well as his other textual choices?  There was an
article that Prof.  Jackson wrote for Shakespeare Bulletin in 1997
called something along the lines of 'Kenneth Branagh's Hamlet: the
textual choices' - however I am stumped in finding a copy - my
inter-library loans have proved fruitless and I was unable to get hold
of the editor in the USA.  Would anyone have any leads on anything like
this?

Thanking you all profusely in advance, and apologising for such a
plaintive request at a point (about a month) scarily close to submission
date...

Thanks again.
