NEW FILMS: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow & Washington Irving: American Dreams
In conjunction with the Yorktown Historical Society Washington Irving: American Dreams will run at 1:00 followed by a short break before the second film, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Washington Irving is perhaps best known today as the author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle Born in New York City in 1783, Irving would be an unlikely candidate for the title "Father of the American Short Story." Irving's own life was as interesting as his best stories. Using historical reenactments, this 43-minute documentary traces Irving's life from his beginning as a precocious teenage writer to the most famous man in America. Viewers follow Irving's journey from the streets of early 19th century New York to the palaces of Europe and the American frontier. The film also touches on Irving's relationships with other writers and politicians including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Mary Shelley, Andrew Jackson, Edgar Allan Poe and Herman Melville, among many others. First written in 1821 as part of author Washington Irving's Sketch Book, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, has alternatively been called a Classic of American Literature, and the Great American Ghost Story. Combining spooky moments with gentle humor and quaint charm, this new 24-minute adaptation closely follows the spirit of Irving's original tale. A narrator tells the story as actors silently act out the scenes---including the thrilling chase of Ichabod Crane by the Headless Horseman! "In the dark shadow of the grove, at the margin of the brook, he beheld something huge, misshapen, black and towering. It stirred not, but seemed gathered up in the gloom like some gigantic monster ready to spring upon the traveller." --from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
