Oh, NO. This really hurts: #RIP Sondra Locke, a wonderful, luminous actress, Oscar-nominated for THE HEART IS A LONELY HUNTER, unjustly blackballed in Hollywood for decades, gone too soon at 74. A fave of mine whom I always hoped would make a comeback. Her '97 memoir is a MUST. pic.twitter.com/AYhtexJq8t
