Rick Santorum puts kids to sleep

Mia FarrowMia Farrow is a frequent Twitter tweeter. Earlier today, for instance, Farrow expressed her disgust at the Chinese and Russian governments' decision to veto United Nations sanctions against Syria, where the Bashar al-Assad regime reportedly massacred hundreds of people in the city of Homs. On the homefront, Farrow posted a picture she called "a gem" (via the website Think Progress).

Regarding the picture (see above), Farrow's tweet reads: "See children's choir literally passing out from boredom during [Republican presidential candidate Rick] Santorum [Florida] speech."

Despite a movie career that includes almost fifty films during the course of nearly five decades, Mia Farrow not only has never won an Oscar, she has never been even nominated for one. that's quite surprising, considering her movie credits. Among those are Roman Polanski's Rosemary's Baby (1968), with John Cassavetes; Peter Yates' John and Mary (1969), with Dustin Hoffman; Jack Clayton's The Great Gatsby (1974), with Robert Redford; and Robert Altman's A Wedding (1978), with Carol Burnett, Paul Dooley, Dennis Christopher, and others.

Farrow's personal and professional association with Woody Allen resulted in 13 movie collaborations. All but five (The Purple Rose of Cairo, Radio Days, September, Another Woman, and Alice) also featuring Allen, those were the following:

The last one came out around the time Farrow and Allen had an acrimonious and highly publicized split. Farrow's post-Woody Allen movies include John Irvin's Widow's Peak (1994), with Joan Plowright and Natasha Richardson; Norman René's Reckless (1995), with Tony Goldwyn; John Moore's The Omen (2006), with Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles; and Todd Solondz's Dark Horse (2011), with Justin Bartha and Selma Blair.

Some years ago, Farrow said she admired several of the movies she made for Allen. Yet, she called Reckless, a coming-of-awareness comedy about a woman who discovers her husband is plotting to kill her, one of her personal favorite films.

Also today on Twitter, Farrow sent "my very best wishes" to Marsha Hunt, who appeared with Farrow's mother, Maureen O'Sullivan, in Robert Z. Leonard's 1940 film version of Pride and Prejudice. Hunt will turn 95 next October 17.
