Actress and director Sondra Locke, who received a supporting actress Oscar nomination in her first movie role for “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter,” died Nov. 3 at 74. The Los Angeles County Public Health Department confirmed her death.
She died due to breast and bone cancer, according to Radar Online, which reported that she was laid to rest at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park & Mortuary.
I was saddened to learn about this.
From the start I enjoyed her acting ability. Still amazed how in her 20s she was able to do effortlessly portray teenaged Mick Kelly in the movie version of one of my favorite books, The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter.
I remember her from her Clint Eastwood movies. From what I've read, Eastwood was a complete monster with her in their personal relationship.
Another fine person that passed away this week: Nancy Wilson
