Katharine Ross


  1. Carroll Baker, The Carpetbaggers, 1964.    How she got toHollywood... Ross wasdiscovered in a San Franciscostage troupe and invioted to ,test for the Rina Marlowe movie queenbased on Jean Harlow.  She didn’t please New York producer Joseph E Levine (but then as Baker proved, what did he know). Universal execs saw the test  and gave Ross a long-term contract.
  2. Faye Dunaway, Bonnie and Clyde, 1966.
  3. Jacqueline Bisset, Bullitt, 1968.   Ross passed, giving a third Hollywood break to Bisset. The real stars, however, were Steve McQueen, his stunt double Bud Ekins and their 1968 Ford Mustang 390 GT 2+2 Fastback in the classic 10 minutes 53 seconds car chase.  
  4. Jacqueline Bisset, Airport, 1969. Another gift from Ross became to Bisset’s fifth LA rôle in succession. The top-billed Burt Lancaster called it “the worst piece of junk ever made. ” (It made him the most he’d ever made from one movie, at least $7m).
  5. Mia Farrow, The Public Eye, 1972.    When planned with Paul Scofield.
  6. Mia Farrow, The Great Gatsby, 1973.     Among the final five Daisy Buchanans - with Candice Bergen, Lois Chiles, Faye Dunaway and, of course, Farrow.(Lois won the other girl, Jordan Baker).
  7. Barbara Bain, Space: 1999, TV, 1973-1977.   The married UK producersGerry and Sylvia Anderson, did not always agree.For their first non-puppetry space series, Sylvia wanted the leads to be Culp and Katharine Ross.Gerry still pulled the strings - er, and tycoon Lew Grade! They both voted for a real couple, the Mission: Impossible stars Bain and Martin Landau. The then most expensive UK seriesstarted shooting in 1973, but didn’t debut until ’75.
  8. Faye Dunaway, Voyage of the Damned, 1976.Ross had the looks. Dunawayhad the Oscar.
  9. Therese Ann Savoy, Caligula, 1978.

All actresses loved her talent and guts (when wrongfully committed to asylums by her parents) and 23  wanted to be…  Frances Farmer.  From the sublime to the ridiculous: Meryl Streep, to Susan Dey  of TV’s Partridge Family. Kim Basinger tested with Sam Shepard (Lange’s husband). Undaunted Susan Blakely made her own 1983  TVersion (from Farmer’s book, Will There Really Be A Morning?).
