Salesman: I got a short presentation. To the crowd The Horse Is Dead. You'll see - this item sells itself. After admiring the new 'mode of transportation' from afar, Butch is approached by one of the saloon women. Drunken Sundance announces that he will also go "hunting" for a woman - after running down a long list of qualifications: "Well, I think I'll get saddled up and go lookin' for a woman too It shouldn't take more than a couple of days. I'm not picky, as long as she's smart and pretty, and sweet, and gentle, and tender and refined, lovely, carefree In a nearby part of town that evening, primly-dressed mid-twenties schoolteacher Etta Place Katharine Ross with her hair in a bun returns to her farmhouse.

The Sundance Kid, who has made a forced entry and waited for her in a corner of the room, surprises her there. His appearance - with a grin on his face - causes her to jump back in fright. Sundance commands her to keep slipping out of her clothes for him - at gunpoint:. Sundance: Keep going, teacher lady. He reaches for his pistol and points it at her. It's OK, don't mind me.

What really happened to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?

Keep on going. She nervously removes her outer slip. Put down your hair. She reaches back behind her head with both hands.

Her hair falls to her shoulders. Shake your head.

He examines her appreciatively. Cocking his gun, he threatens for her to undo the last remaining bits of clothing. She unbuttons her undergarment, revealing the flesh of her body. Then he unbuttons his holster, rises from his chair and approaches toward her with amorous intentions to force himself upon her.

Etta: Unafraid, she watches him approach. He begins to caress her.

Did Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid Die in Bolivia? Yes, but . . . - Los Angeles Times

Sadly Do you know what I wish? Sundance: What? Etta: chiding That once, you'd get here on time! It is soon apparent that this is a game. She is his hot-blooded, renegade, twenty-six year old girlfriend - not a demure virgin. They are lovers that know each other very well. She wraps her arms around him as they embrace and kiss. In a memorable wordless, frolicsome bicycle scene which has nothing to do with the film's plot, Butch appears outside their window the next morning riding one of the salesman's new-fangled bicycles of "the future.

Do you hear me? All mine. Your soft white flesh is mine. His disembodied head with a Charlie Chaplin-like bowler hat glides past the window. Etta rises and stands at the front door, where Butch gestures for her to get on the crossbar. Butch: Meet the future. Etta: Do you know what you're doing? Butch: Theoretically. Butch tries out the latest newfangled invention, with Etta precariously perched on the handlebars, accompanied by Burt Bacharach's contemporary smash hit, the Award-winning song: "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head" sung by B.

Thomas, and lyrics by Hal David. As she watches from the loft of an old barn, he performs stunts to impress her, and ends up ungracefully tumbling onto the ground.


After their bike ride as they walk back to the house, Etta asks about his plans with Sundance:. Etta: You've come to get him for the Flyer? Butch: Do you believe I'm broke already? Etta: Why is there never any money, Butch? Butch: I swear, Etta, I don't know.

I've been working like a dog all my life and I can't get a penny ahead. Etta: Sundance says it's because you're a soft touch and always taking expensive vacations and buying drinks for everyone and you're a rotten gambler. Butch: Well, that might have something to do with it. At the front of her house, Butch lightly kisses her on the cheek, and she ponders their relationship:.

Etta: Butch? Do you ever wonder if I'd met you first we'd been the ones to get involved? Butch: Well we are involved, Etta. Don't you know that? I mean, you are riding on my bicycle. Three days later, a quartet of Bolivian authorities cornered a pair of Americans suspected of being the perpetrators in a rented house in the dusty village of San Vicente. As a Bolivian soldier approached the hideout, the Americans shot him dead.

A brief exchange of gunfire ensued. When the Bolivian authorities cautiously entered the hideout the following morning, they found the bodies of the two foreigners. The man thought to be the Sundance Kid was slumped against a wall with bullet wounds to his body and a gunshot to his forehead. The man believed to be Cassidy was next to him on the floor with a bullet hole to his temple.

At an inquest, Pero identified the corpses as those of the thieves who had ambushed him—although all he had ever seen of the masked men were their eyes. But neither Pero nor anyone else ever positively identified the two dead men as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid before their reported burial in an unmarked grave in a San Vicente cemetery. Writing good fiction, as I have observed in reviewing other debut efforts recently, is not as simple as it seems, and one place this shows in Kolpan's effort is continuity problems. The most glaring: A Pinkerton agent is recorded as standing before an irate client motionless to show both his external respect for the client and his internal rage at being dressed down, but just a paragraph later on the same page the Pinkerton agent is said to shift in his seat.

Little details like that are what make or break the veracity of a fiction and make us willing believers in the fiction. Overall, though, Kolpan shows enough skill to keep the reader's interest, and Etta is a worthwhile career-starter. Apr 22, Andrea Dowd rated it liked it. I won this book on GoodReads--thanks so much! Then, she disappeared and now one knew anything else about her or her life. There is a ton of speculation about who and where this woman was, so what's a person to do but make up something super cool about her?

And that's what Gerald Kolpan did with "Etta". Etta is Lorinda Jamison, Philly socialite who is left orphaned and threatened after the death of her father. With the help of a family friend, she takes off to the West, where she gets into some trouble and eventually is embraced into the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang's way of life. The story nicely weaves in elements of cowboy literature, gunslingers, robbery, murder, and the struggle for women's equality throughout.
