The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Ichabod Crane, a bumbling eccentric schoolmaster, moves to a superstitious town haunted by a headless horseman. A Puritan who constantly quotes Cotton Mather, Ichabod insists he is not superstitious. When a dark figure on horseback follows him home one night, Ichabod screams in terror and shows that he is as superstitious everyone else. The next morning, all that remains of Ichabod Crane is his small, tricorner hat and the sound of his voice.
