movie facts

Though the role of Rosemary is one of Mia Farrow's most well-known, she was not director Roman Polanski's original choice. He almost cast his then-fiancee Sharon Tate and also considered Tuesday Weld for the role, but decided a more well-known actress was needed for the lead part. Farrow's taking the role ended up leading to the demise of her marriage to Frank Sinatra, who demanded that she give up her career when they wed. Sinatra served Farrow with divorce papers on the set of the movie, leading Farrow to almost drop out. She was eventually convinced to stay on by a producer who assured her that she was a shoo-in for an Academy Award for her role.
