Locke was Outstanding
24 August 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Once I realized that Sondra Locke was going to be in this picture, I knew she would give an outstanding performance as Marguerite, "Ratboy",'86. Marguerite is a young girl who is very clever about many things and just simply stays in the house and talks to her dolls who seem to her as being real people who can talk to her and advise her what to do. Marguerites father is Robert Shaw,(Michael),"Jaws",'74 who has not seen his daughter in many years and was never around when she was born into this world. Michael meets Sally Kellerman,(Anna),"Ugly",'04 and wants to marry her, but he has to get permission from Marguerite's mother. Marguerite finally sees her father after so very long and becomes overly attached to her father and practically smothers him with her over powering love and affection. Sondra Locke put her heart and soul into this role and showed her great ability as a very dramatic actress. Very entertaining film.
