Believed to be based on the life of writer-actress Jacqueline Susann, The Lonely Lady follows aspiring screenwriter Jerilee Randall as she tries to achieve success in Hollywood by cozying up with powerful yet toxic men. In her review of the film, Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote that Pia Zadora ― the actress who played Jerilee ― “[has] got spunk,” but that that didn’t prevent her from being “the tiny centerpiece of a badly acted slovenly looking movie that isn’t even much fun.” The Peter Sasdy-directed movie only earned $1.2 million at the box office against a budget of $6 million.
