A Real Movie Star

Posted: May 28, 2009 in Miscellaneous

I attended the tale of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street, at Malibu High tonight, and while I was there I saw a REAL movie star. Some of you youngsters out there (well, like me) may not recognize her at first, but thankfully my friend, Sky, pointed her out to me tonight.

Katharine Ross is married to a movie star in Sam Elliott, but she has a couple of leading roles in two of the best movies ever made, qualifying her as the REAL movie star in my book. She was Mrs. Robinson’s daughter (opposite Dustin Hoffman) in “The Graduate,” and she starred as Etta Place in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Here she is with Paul Newman on the new-fangled contraption called a bicycle in one of the movie’s most memorable scenes.
