!! Tim Burton's movie
* ActorAllusion: Christopher Walken plays the Headless Horseman. He had previously starred as a teacher in ''Film/TheDeadZone'' - who has his students read ''Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow''.
* AdvertisedExtra: Christopher Lee gets top billing in the opening credits. He has one scene, which amusingly takes place ''before'' the credits.
* CreatorBacklash: A variation. Johnny Depp has never seen the film because he hates the way he acts in it.
* DyeingForYourArt: Casper Van Dien gained 30 pounds to play Brom.
* EnforcedMethodActing: According to the [[DVDCommentary director's commentary]] on the DVD, during the scene in the church where the doctor is killed by a blow to the head, they accidentally hit Ian [=McDiarmid=] so hard that he ended up having to go to hospital.
* IronyAsSheIsCast: Christopher Walken did not reveal until after he had been cast as the Headless ''Horse''man, that he didn't know how to ride a horse.
* PlayingAgainstType: Christina Ricci, known as EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette [[Film/TheAddamsFamily Wednesday Addams]], plays [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold golden-haired]] Ingenue Katrina. Given Ricci's type, it's a bit of a mystery whether or not Katrina is a BitchInSheepsClothing. [[spoiler: She isn't]].
* PlayingTheirOwnTwin: [[spoiler: Miranda Richardson plays both Lady Van Tassel and her twin sister, the witch in the Western Woods]].
* StuntCasting: Look out for Martin Landau and Creator/ChristopherLee early in the film.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Johnny Depp wanted to add prosthetics to his face to make Ichabod more unattractive, in line with his book counterpart. Burton decided against it, feeling Ichabod's personality quirks were what made him unattractive.
** Winona Ryder was offered the part of Katrina, which would have reunited her and Johnny Depp from ''Film/EdwardScissorhands''. She turned it down.
** Marlon Brando of all people was the first choice to play the Hessian.

* UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest: The show passes this quite well. Not only does the show have three women in the primary cast (Katrina, Abby, Jenny), but they often talk to each other. Yes, it's often about Crane, but as part of the ''ongoing apocalypse they're fighting''. It also features a large number of women in significant smaller roles (who don't get killed off any more often than men in significant smaller roles).
** Further, the show passes DeggansRule, with three characters of color (two of them {{Token Twofer}}s, as the Mills sisters are women of color) in the central cast, and it even passes the stricter variant in which the characters can't be related to one another, in that Irving isn't related to the Mills sisters. Then you throw in John Cho's Andy Brookes and you've got a Cast Full of Color.
** All told, the show received a lot of positive press solely for not falling into MonochromeCasting and ChromosomeCasting, (and then it turned out to be a decent show on top of that) notwithstanding some unfortunate missteps such as with the CriticalResearchFailure in the episode "For the Triumph of Evil".


** Nurse Lambert from "Mama" is CynthiaStevenson, probably best known as Joy Lass from Series/DeadLikeMe.
