The Fifth Horseman: A Sleepy Hollow Legend
Mr. Andrew O. "I Am A Moral Atheist" Lutes
wants the world to know:
"Washington Irving was making a biblical
allusion joke with the name of the lead
character in his 'Sleepy Hollow' story.
In I Samuel 4:21, the name 'Ichabod' means
'inglorious.' The Hebrews, like the Puritans,
gave verbs and adjectives as proper names.
So, by naming his character 'Ichabod,' Irving
was calling his character 'inglorious;' a
joke his biblically literate reading audience
no doubt smiled at, but is lost to current
day readers and watchers."

Reportedly, fantasy artist
Brom is doing work for
the movie poster.

Inkworks is going to to do Sleepy Hollow trading cards
starting in October, supposedly with signed (autographed!!!)
cast member cards inserted randomly in every other box
(usually a box has between 24 and 36 individual packs
of cards in them), and other special bonus cards in
them as a promotional for the film. They did the same
thing with the Buffy series and were really successful
with the autographed cards being highly sought after
collecter's items. Hope you find a Depp and a Ricci!

Terrible News! My Art and Films has been cancelled!
