When Etta Place (Elizabeth Montgomery) and Jack Maddox (Robert Foxworth) reach the abandoned schoolhouse where Etta taught, she sees an old bicycle leaning against the railing. If you listen to the music here, you can hear "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" playing slowly. This was the theme song to "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (1969) and played extensively throughout the scene where Etta and Butch ride this bike. See more »
She came in two days ago - hied over to Amy Wilkens'. Didn't place her at first until they caught her rolling a customer. Hold your face up. Yeah, she's your one all right. I would have taken her to Denver myself, except it's a long ride and I heard you were in the field and... Hey, what I mean, if you want to hear a story, give me a few minutes with her and I'll have her confessin'!
Put her back in your corral, Mr. Spence.

Elizabeth Montgomery was a fine actress, but she was hardly the frontier-type, and her refined, ladylike way of speaking (not to mention her painful bouncing in the horse's saddle) makes for an unlikely portrayal of Etta Place, girlfriend of notorious outlaw The Sundance Kid, herself wanted for robbery and treason. Director Marvin Chomsky attempts to set a dusty, dreamlike mood, and the opening (filmed in sepia tone) is promising. Unfortunately, the story really doesn't make much sense. Etta, tired of hiding out because of the bounty on her, tells a two-bit robber she's ready to turn herself in, yet he feeds her a lie about Sundance still being alive so that a legendary bounty hunter can capture her. Cheap, slim made-for-TV movie, mostly filmed on Fox's backlot, has a few scenes that work, but Chomsky doesn't fare too well with crowd scenes, and an opening moment where Etta watches her life portrayed on the stage is woefully slack. The picture is also not helped by poor editing and mediocre photography. Katharine Ross played Etta Place in 1969's "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid"; she returned to the role in 1976 with the TV-movie, "Wanted: The Sundance Woman".
