Tom Stoppard

Here's an incredibly thorough essay on the early 1988 changes Stoppard made to Boam's draft of Crusade, with charts like this:



My first thought was the author had unearthed Stoppard's draft from some library collection, but he used the published transcript. Stoppard's UTexas collection, detailed here and here, deserves a closer look. Spielberg gave input on an Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats feature? Anyway, here's a closer look at the correspondence, 19 out of 153 boxes. Most of this is probably about Empire of the Sun:
Quote:
Amblin Entertainment (Firm) ( Sarah Bowman , Marty Cohen , Barbara Harley , Cathy Konrad , Kathleen Kennedy , Frank Marshall , Kathleen Miranda , Deborah Jelin Newmyer , Bonne Radford , Mary Radford , Jo Shilling , Alex Siskin , Steven Spielberg , Mary Webb )--8.5-7, 69.19-20, 83.10, 84.11, 94.4, 112.1, 125.3, 125.6, 129.3, 143.7, 144.5
Spielberg, Steven, 1947- --8.2, 8.6, 57.3, 69.19-20, 77.11, 83.4, 83.6, 84.11, 94.4, 124.4, 125.6, 128.1, 138.1
Kennedy, Kathleen --8.5, 69.20, 77.10, 84.11, 90.5-6, 94.4, 117.3, 124.2, 124.5, 125.3, 125.6, 145.2
Marshall, Frank --8.5, 94.4, 124.2, 125.6
Kennedy/Marshall Company (Lori Connolly) --66.7, 128.3
Lucasfilm, Ltd. (Colin Wilson) --94.4
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Revisions of the screenplay by Jeffrey Boam)--94.1-4
It's all classified "Access Open for research." It seems it would be just as easy to scan as categorize.

Edit: The UTexas Photoduplication Order Form says "digital copies may also be ordered, with fees assessed on a cost-recovery basis. The Center will consider requests for duplication of materials on a case-by-case basis." Not sure if a script would count as one or many PDFs.
