Famous Ephebophile: Frank Sinatra

Mia Farrow, Frank Sinatra and Tuesday Weld

Sarracino and Scott related in The Porning of America that 44-year-old Frank Sinatra had an affair with 14-year-old Tuesday Weld. Tuesday ironically became famous for turning down the role of Lolita in Kubrick’s adaption of the novel. However, she eventually accepted a role in Pretty Poison as Sue Ann, a high school cheerleader who had an affair with a middle-aged ex-convict.

In addition, J. Randy Taraborrelli's wrote in Sinatra: Behind the Legend, that 19-year-old Mia Farrow lost her virginity to 48-year-old Frank Sinatra at his "ultra-modern glass and metal house" in Palm Springs after their flight on a private jet. “They had dinner on the terrace, served by an army of servants, and then he swept her into his bedroom.” Farrow described the night as “magical”.

And as you may know, in January of 1992, Farrow found six graphically nude photographs (e.g., "legs spread apart") of Soon-Yi, her 19-year-old (adopted) daughter, on a mantelpiece in Woody Allen's apartment. 

Vanity Fair related that subsequent to her marriage to Sinatra and prior to her marriage to Allen, Farrow married composer-conductor André Previn. Previn and Farrow had three sons and adopted three underprivileged Asian daughters. (You guessed it. Soon-Yi Previn was one of the adopted daughters.) But what you may not have guessed it that Previn and Farrow were the inspiration for the song “Beware of Young Girls” that was written by Dory Previn. (You guessed it. Dory was André’s ex-wife.) 

Previn and twenty-three-year-old Farrow started an affair while Previn was conducting the London Symphony Orchestra and Farrow was filming A Dandy in Aspic. Dory separated from André after she discovered that Farrow was pregnant with André’s child.
