I am a bit torn with this book. On one hard I love Sondra Locke. I remember her public break up with Clint Eastwood very well even though I was a young person. I really understood it at the time as a man with power trying to make a woman into a "nothing". It's one of the many things I learned from as a young adult and why I am now a feminist. The book is beautifully written. But I guess the content is more of my issue. The title gives the impression that the book is a tell all about her and Clint.

Sondra Locke had a very hard early life, and she caught fame almost by accident, by lying about her age. The book has a very long introduction to her life and her struggles of horrible parenting and the escape of a rich boy down the street who encouraged her to chase stardom. Then evidently she met Clint, and she uses the latter part of the book to explain this in bitter detail. From red carpet dining, skiing trips and her gifted own home, to being locked out of 'her' home, having her walls tapped and her job finished

Sondra Locke’s autobiography stands out because it doesn’t fit labels. It’s a Hollywood Journey, but it reads like a novel. We know these characters. This is also an important part of the book; the way Locke describes – and the obvious good taste she has for – houses, decoration and artwork, which remind Raymond Chandler’s talent when he described places. Locke starred in Run Shadow Run with Robert Forster, not a successful film but a very fulfilling experience. Sondra Locke underwent surgery and chemotherapy. In the hospital, they were expecting a witch who was suing that nice hero Clint Eastwood so they felt surprised.

Locke's autobiography, The Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly – A Hollywood Journey, was published in 1997. Locke died on November 3, 2018, at the age of 74 from a cardiac arrest related to breast and bone cancers, although it was not publicized until December 14, 2018. Her body was buried (?) at Pierce Brothers Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary. She is survived by her husband Dr. Scott Cunneen.

Their journey took them to Hollywood where in 1975, Locke met superstar Clint Eastwood. With an instant mutual attraction, they became involved, with Eastwood assuming an almost Svengali-like control over Locke. In a surprisingly interesting book, Locke spins a tale in the southern storytelling tradition with images of firefly-lit nights, homecooked meals, and colorfully eccentric characters. From sleepy Shelbyville to überwired Hollywood home of flickering street lamps, three martini lunches and self-centered amoral characters, Locke retains a down home perspective devoid of any pretense or ego.

The Good, the Bad & the Very Ugly. Everyone from Carmen Electra to the Olsen twins will be penning detailed and increasingly superfluous Hollywood memoirs.

Sondra Locke's most memorable film performances – video. Sondra Locke, the American actor who was nominated for an Oscar for her first film before co-starring in six films with her one-time partner, Clint Eastwood, has died. Sondra Locke: a charismatic performer defined by a toxic relationship with Clint Eastwood. The following year she released her memoir, titled The Good, the Bad and the Very Ugly: A Hollywood Journey, which also detailed the double mastectomy and chemotherapy that came with her first bout with breast cancer. She told the AP at the time that the title, a play on one of Eastwood’s films, was applicable to the story. I try to cover the good years as well as the bad and the ugly, Locke said. Also, that in even the worst ugly things there can sometimes be a lot that will make you a better person. Locke had married actor Gordon Anderson in 1967.

The surprising, intensely personal account of Sondra Locke's thirteen-year relationship with actor Clint Eastwood recalls his manipulation of her career and personality and her spiritual journey out of a destructive relationship. 100,000 first printing. Tour.

People want dirt then complain that it "outs" the celebrity. I have no problems with any of Ms. Locke's statements. I really enjoyed the anecdotes behind her life and climb to early stardom. The Eastwood stuff is pretty tame, but still...it is interesting to rewatch the movies they've both done and know a little history behind it.

I am a bit torn with this book. On one hard I love Sondra Locke. I remember her public break up with Clint Eastwood very well even though I was a young person. I really understood it at the time as a man with power trying to make a woman into a "nothing". It's one of the many things I learned from as a young adult and why I am now a feminist.

The book is beautifully written. The language and flow is great and Ms Locke is s clearly multi talented. But I guess the content is more of my issue. The title gives the impression that the book is a tell all about her and Clint. In reality she writes more about her husband and childhood friend Gordon. I also felt like Sondra did not explain why she got into a relationship with a married man and what if any burden that she carried. It was an odd way to be in a relationship for each of them. Clint also has a proven track record of dating a new woman while still committed to another.

I came out of the book seeing both sides actually. Sondra promised to take care of Gordon the rest of his life and he really didn't work. That put Gordon directly in the center of their relationship and I can see how that would grow tiresome for Clint. But Clint ABSOLUTELY ruined her career in revenge. For me it was an odd tale where I did not feel as though I completely understood all of these people.

Interesting book...sometimes gets off subject, but overall, I enjoyed it.

It was most informative.

Initially when starting this book I would have agreed with the most critical review on here. However, I gave it a go for a few more chapters and found myself sucked in to the story and actually sympathizing with Sondra (something I never thought I would do). There is a lot of insight to Sondra and Clint Eastwood's relationship and how talented she really is. I'm very glad I stuck with it and read the story through. It was a very good read!
