Wanted: The Sundance Woman is a western movie from 1976 that tells the story of Etta Place (Katharine Ross), the girlfriend of the famous outlaw Sundance Kid. The movie begins with Etta leading a normal life as a schoolteacher, but her peaceful existence is disrupted when her former lover, Harry Longabaugh (Steve Forrest), also known as the Sundance Kid, is rumored to be alive and in Mexico.

Etta sets out to find Sundance and convinces her old friend and fellow outlaw, Kid Curry (Michael Conrad), to help her. The two travel to Mexico and finally find Sundance, who was presumed dead after a shootout with the Bolivian army years earlier. Sundance is now living a quiet life with another woman, Rosalinda (Stella Stevens), and her young son.

Etta's arrival puts Sundance in a difficult position, as he is torn between his love for Rosalinda and his feelings for Etta. Meanwhile, the three outlaws become entangled in a dangerous adventure, as they take on a ruthless gang of bank robbers led by Frank Mansfield (Jack Colvin).

The movie features several thrilling gunfights, horse chases, and a lot of action. However, what really sets Wanted: The Sundance Woman apart from other westerns is its strong female lead, who is not just a damsel in distress, but a capable and independent woman who is willing to risk everything for the man she loves.

Katharine Ross delivers a remarkable performance as Etta Place, bringing depth and complexity to the character. Her portrayal of a woman torn between her loyalty to Sundance and her desire for a normal life is both heartbreaking and inspiring.

Steve Forrest also shines as the conflicted Sundance, capturing the character's charm and vulnerability. His chemistry with Ross is palpable, making their emotional scenes together all the more powerful.

Stella Stevens, although in a supporting role, delivers a memorable performance as Rosalinda, bringing a sense of warmth and humanity to the story.

The supporting cast, including Michael Conrad as Kid Curry, and Jack Colvin as the ruthless Frank Mansfield, also deliver solid performances, adding depth and complexity to the movie's ensemble.

Overall, Wanted: The Sundance Woman is a well-crafted western that delivers a powerful story of love, loyalty, and redemption. It is a movie that can be enjoyed by fans of the genre and those who are looking for a movie with strong female leads.
