A Spooky, Fun, and Seasonal Classic Told Outdoors! Adapted by Vera Morris
It begins when Ichabod Crane, a lightly goofy schoolmaster, comes to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow with all his worldly possessions. He’s looking for a good life and a wealthy wife who will supply it. Once he sets eyes on the local beauty, Katrina Van Tassel, he’s sure his dream will come true. Unhappily for Ichabod, Katrina has a boyfriend who’s extremely jealous... the boisterous Brom Bones. To complicate matters the graveyard is haunted by a small army of restless spirits, including the most famous phantom of all, the Headless Horseman. At a party, Ichabod proposes marriage to Katrina, but is booted out by Brom and forced to make his way home through a terrible storm. In the dark, there’s something shadowy and towering intent on taking Ichabod’s life — the Headless Horseman! Poor Ichabod has to outrun the galloping phantom! Does he? No one knows for sure because the schoolmaster is never seen again.

Eddie’s secretary Rosie wonders if the factory can get a government contract and convert to making airplane parts instead—if only they can find the manpower. At a time when the radio and the U.S. mail were the main sources of information and ration books were a fact of life, Rosie is willing to shed tradition, roll up her sleeves, and do her part.
