Actress Sondra Locke achieved critical acclaim with her debut performance in "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter" (1968), although it was as Clint Eastwood's leading lady in films such as "Every Which Way But Loose" (1978) and "Sudden Impact" (1983) that she would be far better remembered. After her breakout success in "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter," anticipated roles in major films failed to materialize, however, and Locke was initially seen in smaller projects like the exploitation drama "Cover Me Babe" (1970) and the cult-classic "Willard" (1971). Beyond the little seen shocker "A Reflection of Fear" (1973), Locke made guest star appearances on several television series throughout the first half of the decade. With her supporting role in Eastwood's seminal Western "The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976), the actress gained more exposure than ever before alongside the revered film's star, with who she became romantically involved during production. The couple continued working together, and Locke benefitted from exposure in more Eastwood features that included "The Gauntlet" (1977) and "Bronco Billy" (1980). Her film fortunes changed once again after the very bitter, very public and highly litigious breakup with Eastwood in 1989, which found Locke suing the actor-director as well as Warner Bros. for palimony and a fraudulent deal to direct films, respectively. Despite the acrimony that followed the collapse of her famous relationship, Locke will be long remembered for her prominent roles in some of Eastwood's most beloved works. Sondra Locke died of complications from cancer on November 3, 2018. She was 74.
