Ichabod falls for the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, who’s as rich as she is beautiful. His rival is the crude, handsome farm boy, Brom Bones. After a great feast at the Van Tassel home, Ichabod has to ride home in the dark. As he goes, he whistles to hide his fear. Then he hears someone whistle back . . . and the adventure begins!
