Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.
HIDDEN MICKEY: (At around one minute) In the first four drops of the red wax dripping, at the beginning of the movie.
Lady Van Tassel:
Watch your heads.
(at around 55 mins) The rifle Brom uses to shoot the Headless Horseman has a scope on it. Scopes were not invented until the 19th century. The first documented telescopic rifle sight was invented between 1835 and 1840.
The opening credits - shown over Ichabod's travel to Sleepy Hollow - interact with the landscape: if Ichabod's coach is near a river, the words are reflected on the surface of the water; if he's in a forest the letters drift away like dead leaves, and so on.
