The schoolteacher has barely arrived when he begins to pursue the beautiful young heiress Katrina Van Tassel, angering Abraham Van Brunt, who is courting her. Crane's harsh, small-minded approach to teaching also turns some of the villagers against him. Soon there many who would like to see him leave the village altogether. Written by Snow Leopard

Trivia

The first feature photographed on panchromatic negative film, which was equally sensitive to all colors of the spectrum, unlike the earlier orthochromatic film, which rendered blue skies and blue eyes as pale white. See more »

Poor Version
12 March 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Headless Horseman, The (1922)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

Pretty poor version of Washington Irving's tale. Will Rogers plays the school teacher who travels to Sleepy Hollow only to discover the mysterious headless horseman. For some reason this film pays more attention to the teacher and his personal affairs rather than the headless horseman and the legend surrounding him. The movie only runs 76-minutes but it feels like a couple of hours. The story is all over the map without too many of anything actually going on. The miscasting of Rogers hurts the film as well, although the special effects and sets are good.
