100 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subject: Family Friendly
Shelley Duvall and her Hollywood friends bring to life some of classic literature's greatest stories!
Ed Begley, Jr. (A Mighty Wind) stars as Ichabod Crane, the superstitious new schoolmaster who comes to town and finds himself competing with local favorite Brom Bones (Tim Thomerson) for the heart of the beautiful Katrina (Beverly D'Angelo). In a plot orchestrated by Bones, Crane comes face-to-face with Sleepy Hollow's most famous resident, the Headless Horseman! Brom soon learns that it doesn't pay to use trickery when he has a scary encounter of his own.
Steve Guttenberg (Three Men and a Baby) portrays Pecos Bill, the "King of the Cowboys," in this rootin' tootin' epic. Raised by coyotes, Bill puts the "wild" in the Wild West settlement of Petunia City. When his rowdy behavior gets him run out of town, he heads for Mexico. There, Bill lassoes a cyclone to save the state of Texas from drought. His heroics become campfire legend, proving that selflessness and bravery are never forgotten. The tall tale's amazing cast includes Rebecca De Mornay, playing the sassy Slew Foot Sue, as well as comedian Martin Mull and Will & Grace's Megan Mullally.
