The Good, the Bad, and the Very Ugly: A Hollywood Journey Reviews
This is an older memoir. It had information about Ms Locke and Clint Eastwood that I never knew. Locke packs her book with pictures. Besides acting in movies with Clint (and becoming his lover), she also won an Academy Award for an earlier movie with Alan Arkin (her first movie). If you like tell-alls and movie history, this is for YOU.
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.
Great read. Reveals the extent celebrities had clout to present the image they wanted to present while controlling and wielding power behind the scenes. This story reminded me about what Hitchcock did to Tippi Hedron. Sondra was a beautiful actress and wish she had had a chance to continue doing what she wanted in Hollywood during her prime.
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.
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!
Great book great seller
