I posted a message a few weeks ago asking for leads on articles dealing
with the film _Rushmore_.  I *was* working out a plan toward writing an
article on the film.  Since then, however, I've changed my mind, and am now
working on something having to do with the "Boarding School" film.

I am still thinking in terms of Rushmore, but also including films like
Dead Poets' Society, Class, Scent of a Woman, Taps, Lord of the Flies
(well, not exactly, but I'm sure there's something in there that I can
use), etc.

I'm obviously focusing on "boy-films," mainly because the only girl-type
boarding-school movies I can come up with are something called The Trouble
with Angels (which I've not seen); and Mädchen in Uniform, which has been
just done to death by the gender- and lesbian-studies crowd.

So, then--Now I'm asking for help in finding any journal articles that in
any way deal with these types of films.  Any help would be greatly
appreciated, and I thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
