Amazing but true ... there are three versions of Tonto Woman available at audible.com. Alfred Molina's version of The Tonto Woman is finally available and so are two other pretty cool versions including Wlliam Atheron's storytelling as part of The Complete Western Stories and Taye Digg's swell version as part of When the Women Come Out to Dance. Both are also available used at Amazon and eBay. And don't forget about Henry Strozier's resonant reading of The Tonto Woman, still available from Recorded Books. As for the short film of The Tonto Woman, good luck finding a version anywhere. You can see some clips from the film at YouTube, including the trailer, the "Do you know who I am?" sequence and the dinner sequence. Also, Lou Diamond Phillips read the story live in 2004, but no versions of that are circulating. Finally, the character of Ruben Vega also appears in the audiobook Gunsights though he meets an unfortunate demise.
