'Graduate' Star -- Restraining Order Dismissed

4/3/2011 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The war between "The Graduate" star Katharine Ross and her daughter is over -- for now -- because neither party showed up in court ... forcing the judge to dismiss Katharine's restraining order.

Katharine -- best know for her role as Elaine Robinson -- and her daughter were no-shows earlier this week in L.A. County Superior Court.

As we first reported, Katharine who's married to Sam Elliott -- filed for a restraining order against her 26-year-old daughter ... who Kat claims stabbed her with a pair of scissors.

A judge granted Katharine a temporary restraining order earlier this month -- but since neither party showed this week ... the case has been tossed.

A mom getting a restraining order against her own 26 yr-old child?

That's pretty weak. How about just locking the door next time?

Sam Elliot is horse-hung with humungous low-hangers.

I think Katharine Ross is best known for her role in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, not The Graduate.

Probably felt the need for publicity. Career's been the tank for sometime.

The daughter obviously needs help and maybe getting the temporary restraining order made this 25 year old adult child of Sam & Katherines' have a wakeup call !

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Wow. Had no idea things were that heavy between them. Mickey Rooney & his kin either. Maybe the offspring thought they could take advantage of the dotty old folks, but got pissed when the stop sign went up. We would've heard over the years if Katharine Ross was trouble, it always comes out, and nothing has. So her frigging daughter needs a rap across the mouth to learn a little respect toward her mother.

C'mon TMZ, do your job and investigate what is the matter with their daughter. Any past incidents? Has anyone close to the situation who knows what is going on spoken?

This was not a good idea on Katherine's part. If Chloe is indeed mentally ill, not taking proper action is not helping the matter.
This could have forced Chloe to get the help she needs.
