Katharine Ross

Happy Birthday to

Katharine Ross

70 today

Ms Ross will always be a significant played in the history of film due to her high point in the late sixties with two knockout performances in The Graduate and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in close succession. However she was never able to take that momentum and maintain a sustained career, or maybe she just didn't want to. Also notable is her enduring relationship with Sam Elliott, still going strong after 30 years it has to be the model on which Hollywood cuples should be formed.

Katharine Ross is 70---Wow...she was a touchstone for a whole generation of idealistic and questioning young people....the final shot of her and Dustin Hoffman sitting in the back of the bus in "The Graduate" was like seeing the Grant Wood painting "American Gothic" for the first time. I have missed her a lot over the years.
