Biography - A Short Wiki
Rarely does an actor’s debut film manage to create Oscar waves, but veteran actress Sondra Locke is perhaps, an exception, both in talent and beauty. Her debut film, “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter,” was nominated for all the prestigious award ceremonies in 1968. Although she couldn’t actually clinch an award, the buzz generated was of such a magnitude that it refused to die throughout her career.
Here is a short summary of Sondra Locke's career:
In 1967, Sondra Locke was actively working in the theatre when her life changed overnight. She got selected to play Mick Kelly in “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter,” a film that went on to woo critics and audiences alike through a country-wide talent hunt. The unprecedented success of the film not only catapulted Sondra to international fame and recognition but also made her a sought after actress in Hollywood. She went on to be a part of several films, like “Cover Me Babe,” “Willard,” and “The Second Coming of Suzanne.”
Family and Personal Life
Sondra Locke has been largely unlucky in love. When her marriage to Gordon Leigh Anderson, a supposedly gay sculptor, didn’t work out, she began a relationship with fellow actor, Clint Eastwood. However, the 14 years-long live in the relationship came to a rather ugly end when Sondra filed a cheating case against Clint. Allegedly, Clint had cheated her, both personally and professionally, ensnaring her in a fraud working deal with Warner Bros.
