A TV adaptation of Washington Irving's classic ghost story. Humor is the drawing card in this version, with Jeff Goldblum a nerdish Ichabod Crane, Dick Butkus an appropriately nasty Brom Bones, and Meg Foster as spirited Katrina van Tassel. Angered that Katrina has grown fond of schoolmaster Crane, Brom Bones determines to scare off the interloper by filling his head with spooky tales of a Headless Horseman. Crane pooh-poohs the legends, until one fateful ride home in the dark of night. Written by
Brom Bones did not have a close companion named Frederic Dutcher in the original novel, but he did have a gang who assisted him in playing on tricks on Ichabod throughout the town. See more »
Squire, I don't take it lightly seeing the schoolmaster hanging around Katrina. I thought you and me had an agreement.
Squire Van Tassel:
I agreed that you could court my Katrina with matrimonial intentions, but that was three years ago, Brom Bones.
Well Squire, marriage ain't nothing for a man to hurry into.
Squire Van Tassel:
And for three years I'm still not a grandfather!

This version of Legend of Sleepy Hollow has all the ingredients of a classic. The mood is set in the beginning through music and a great opening scene...I make it a point to watch in the autumn between Halloween and Thanksgiving...I guess you need to have grown up in the 80's to really appreciate the feel of this particular version...Great Family Film and stands on the ability and confidence of fine acting...even in the quirky monologue...This film is getting rave reviews from at least 20 or 30 of my family and friends. I suggest anyone reading this review to go and get yourself a copy on the VHS format with the original cover...I don't know why they didn't print any DVD version yet...it is worth a view either way.
