The Legend of Sleepy Hollow was a 1980 television movie on NBC filmed in Utah. It starred Jeff Goldblum as Ichabod Crane, Meg Foster as Katrina, and Dick Butkus as Brom Bones. The film is also known as La leggenda di Sleepy Hollow in Italy. It was directed by Henning Schellerup. Executive producer Charles Sellier was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on the movie.

It was not closely adapted to the original story, depicting Crane as a skeptic regarding ghosts and the supernatural, although it foreshadowed Tim Burton's similar 1999 treatment.

This film ends with Ichabod arriving at Katrina's house and the Headless Horseman returns to the dark forest. The Van Tassels bring him inside their house for hot chocolate.
