Try holding up on the handle and pulling down on the latch in the door with a flat tip screwdriver. if the latch doesn't release doing this you will nned to remove the door panel to replace the latch assembly.

If you are speaking of the outside of the lock where the key goes into it. Then you can start by spraying some "white lithium" grease or some "wd40" into the locking mechanism. After a few minutes, this should free up the lock so that you can unlock and lock the doors.

Mazda 3 2010 driver's door locked and won't open

This is what fixed the my car's driver's door that was stuck closed and locked: the plastic piece that function as the manual lock/unlock on the inside of the door (it's black but when the door's unlocked it has a red side facing out) had essentially popped out and everything was jammed. So you push the button back in while you flip the inside handle open. But maybe I was lucky, in that it was only the button that was jammed.

Get a gun and shoot it! Oh, it's a classic. Well, take the inner door panel off to get to the sticky mechanism. Once in there, it should be a simple fix. WD-40 doesn't help on the door latch to try and free it up?
Good luck, hope you get it fixed. I like seeing old cars on the road. and out of recycler's hands. Glad you didn't go for the Cash for Clunkers program, lol.
