Katherine Ross for a long heartbeat was one of America's sublime young actors. 

Design: Gregory

As Elaine Robinson, in one of the sixties seminal movies, The Graduate - a movie that shaped the career of Dustin Hoffman, breathed new life into Anne Bancroft, and solidified Mike Nichols as the go-to director of the times, while giving folk-rock duo Simon and Garfunkel a number one album on the US charts, Katherine represented the ultimate sixties dream girl. The one you want to take home to mother.

Design: Gregory

Her role as Etta Place in 1969's Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid solidified her place as the sixties American Sweetheart.

Actor and voice-over commercial pitch-man Sam Elliott did take her home to mother and they have been married for  the past twenty-nine years.
