  1. Sondra Locke was actually pretty good in her first film “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter,” which she got an Oscar nom for. Who knows, maybe she would have done better work if she never hooked up with Eastwood, she may have pushed herself more. It was sad that news of her death only broke a month after she had died.

    Going back to Sudden Impact, its not good(or particularly well directed, which is odd since Eastwood had already proven himself to be a good director at that point) but I did like you got to see Harry do some detective work when he went on vacation, so there was some some attempt to do something different for a little bit.

    Also, surprised you didn’t mention the actor who played Horace, Harry’s partner. He was the same actor in the ‘did he fire 5 for 6 shots’ scene in the original Dirty Harry. Its sort of jarring to see him here(he was also in magnum force and the enforcer, guess he was friends with Eastwood)

    That is pretty crazy that Eastwood got 60% of the profits, never heard of any actor getting that sort of deal before.
    Maybe that’s why he made little effort to do something new or challenging with the film, just wanted to draw in the masses.
