Do you have any information about Sondra Locke, who starred with Clint Eastwood in the 1980 film Bronco Billy?
—Bob O., North Carolina

Locke, born May 28, 1947, makes the occasional motion picture, including 2005's Loving Annabelle. But she's kept a low profile since 1996, when she successfully settled a lawsuit against Warner Bros., in which she claimed the movie studio enticed her to sign a bogus development deal in exchange for dropping a $25 million suit against her ex-boyfriend, Clint Eastwood. "I don't have to worry about working—let's put it that way," she says of the settlement price. A native of Shelbyville, Tenn. (pop. 16,105), she attended Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tenn. (pop. 68,816), before moving to Los Angeles and pursuing an acting career. Locke, a breast cancer survivor, lives in the Hollywood Hills.
