The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - T. Burton (1999)
I had all but forgotten this film - notably absent, as far as I remember, from MOMA's Tim Burton exhibition currently at the Cinémathèque de Paris, which I recommend if you haven't seen it - but it was of course delectable like most Burton / Depp alliances.
New England has never looked more entrancing, Depp as alluring as always. A carnival of staggering special effects.
Whatever happened to Ricci's career, though?..
Finally, kudos to Tim Burton (or the studio?) for not having entitled it 'Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow'. That would have been downright fraudulous...
