  • Actress Katharine Ross was trained at the San Francisco Workshop, barely completing her apprenticeship before landing leading roles on television. She made her TV debut as a spoiled teenager implicated in a fatal auto accident in Are There Any More Out There Like You?, a 1963 installment of the NBC anthology Kraft Suspense Theatre. Ross was Oscar nominated for her second film role as Dustin Hoffman's amour in The Graduate (1967). After successfully teaming with Paul Newman and Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, she became mired in a series of steadily worsening films. She staged a comeback as Francesca in the 1985 nighttime TV serial The Colbys. At that time, Ross was married to actor Sam Elliott. Together, Ross and Elliot scripted and starred in an above-average Western TV movie Conagher (1991).

QUOTES FROM Katharine Ross CHARACTERS

Joanna Eberhart
Why do they call you Dis?
Dale Coba
Because I used to work at Disneyland.
Joanna Eberhart
I don't believe it.
Dale Coba
Why not?
Joanna Eberhart
You don' t look like the kind of person who likes to see people have fun.
Elaine Robinson
Good night.
Benjamin Braddock
Are we getting married tomorrow?
Elaine Robinson
No...
Benjamin Braddock
Day after tomorrow?
Elaine Robinson
I don't know. Maybe we are, and maybe we're not.
Etta Place
I won't watch you die...
Butch Cassidy
Do you believe I'm broke already?
Etta Place
Why is there never any money, Butch?
Butch Cassidy
Well, I swear, Etta, I don't know. I've been working like a dog all my life and I can't get a penny ahead
Etta Place
Sundance says it's because you're a soft touch, and always taking expensive vacations, and buying drinks for everyone, and you're a rotten gambler.
Butch Cassidy
Well that might have something to do with it.
The Sundance Kid
What I'm saying is, if you want to go, I won't stop you. But the minute you start to whine or make a nuisance, I don't care where we are, I'm dumping you flat.
Butch Cassidy
Don't sugarcoat it like that, Kid. Tell her straight.
Etta Place
I'm 26, and I'm single, and a school teacher, and that's the bottom of the pit. And the only excitement I've known is here with me now. I'll go with you, and I won't whine, and I'll sew your socks, and I'll stitch you when you're wounded, and I'll do anything you ask of me except one thing. I won't watch you die. I'll miss that scene if you don't mind.
Donnie Darko
I made a new friend.
