Mia Farrow coming to Memphis for Rhodes College appearance

Daughter of Hollywood royalty, bride of Frank Sinatra, muse of Woody Allen, advocate for children’s rights and mother of “Rosemary’s Baby,” actress Mia Farrow will be at Rhodes College on March 19 to talk about movies, politics and “mobilizing community change.”

The free lecture will begin at 7:45 p.m. in the McCallum Ballroom of the Bryan Campus Life Center. Doors open for Rhodes students at 7:15, and for the general public at 7:30.

Sharing the stage with Farrow will be the actress’ son, Ronan Farrow, a writer and human rights lawyer who worked with the Obama State Department as the founder of the Office of Global Youth Issues. Farrow has worked on youth issues in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and during the “Arab Spring” uprisings.

A regular on the prime-time soap opera “Peyton Place” in the 1960s, Farrow is the daughter of studio-era director John Farrow and his wife, actress Maureen O’Sullivan, remembered as “Jane” opposite Johnny Weissmuller’s Tarzan in the 1930s and ‘40s. Farrow’s notable films include such Woody Allen productions as “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” and the 1974 version of “The Great Gatsby,” with Robert Redford.

The event is sponsored by the Rhodes College Student Lecture Board.
