From the ghouls in Dickens and Charlotte Bronte, to Ichabod Crane, to the sexually frustrated, spindle-shanked Miss Sidney in William Inge's Picnic, [WASPs] have drawn teachers as loathesome, utterly ridiculous, and inadequate in all ways. And, of course, skinny, should anyone miss the point of their poverty.
~Florence King, WASP, Where Is Thy Sting?
Of course, this is about Washington Irving's Ichabod, not Johnny Depp's. *EG*
You know, I had to see the movie several times to get used to a gorgeous actor as Ichabod Crane instead of a gangly scarecrow.
