Have you ever seen a ghost? (an episode from «The Sleepy Hollow», 1980)

This funny episode is taken from the movie «The Sleepy Hollow» (1980). Ichabod Crane, the main character of the story, has come to teach children in a small village, situated in an isolated valley. As I am quite fascinated by the story, I would like to share my emotions with my readers. The video has the text of the dialogues. Also there are some extracts from the story by Washington Irving.

Now it is time for you to go to the Sleepy Hollow, one of the quietest places in the whole world, where long ago lived the descendants of the Dutch settlers. Let us go there!
