What happened to: Sondra Locke

Its a way to tell someones age if they have ever heard of Sondra Locke. Partnering her name with Clint Eastwood should give a clue, but what ever happened to Sondra Locke?

The Outlaw Josey Wales,The Gauntlet,Every Which Way But Loose, Bronco Billy,Any Which way You Can and Sudden Impact were all films she starred in with Clint whom she was in a relationship with for 14 years. Post-Sudden Impact things went downhill with Clint and Sondra splitting (not amicably either) and resulting in lawsuits which lasted for years.

1990 saw Sondra face and go through a double mastectomy due to breast cancer., 1997 saw her publish an autobiography called The Good The Bad and the very Ugly  .

Acting wise not much happened for Sondra post-Sudden Impact.(1986) with 2 TV slots in a single episode and only 3 films. Nothing from 2000 onwards.

Considering Sondra Locke was in so many films in the 70s and 80s, its surprising to see that she vanished from the screens so fast. Was she the best actress around? No. But she was fine and in my opinion could have gone the way of Sally Field and carved out a nice career for herself.

Sadly she didnt.

  2. Sondra was awesome. None of those films in the 70′s and 80′s had “stellar” acting…not even from Clint himself. Cheesy, but enjoyable movies. I was saddened to hear of her breast cancer. Back in the day, she was hanging on my wall…lol…a most beatiful woman for certain.

  3. I always enjoy watching Clint Eastwood films and remember him from a television series in the 50s when he was the character Rowdy Yates. What made me look up Sondra Locke today was that I noted that in every film in which she stars with Clint, she is always posed in some way to look very sexually available. In The Gauntlet she is shown with her legs wide apart – clothed – but still the message is there. I always felt sorry for her because of that and even more so when she had her famous law battles with Eastwood who could have been more generous given his considerable fortune and that she had no doubt helped him to earn it by living with him and being his partner for so long. I wonder if her breast cancer later was as a result of her long court troubles?
