Angered that hometown heiress Katrina Van Tassell has grown fond of recently hired schoolmaster Ichabod Crane, village rowdy "Brom" Bones tries to scare off the timorous teacher with local legends of a Headless Horseman, said to be the ghost of a Hessian soldier decapitated by a stray cannonball during the Revolutionary War. It all comes to a "head" (so to speak) one dark, fateful night under a lightning-struck tulip tree.
Starring Laurence Mintz, Danielle Illario, Jeff Maschi, and Michael Jarmus
