Farrow was married to Frank Sinatra from 1966 to 1968, a period when the singer, the model for a supporting character in “The Godfather,” was alleged to be a close associate of numerous organized crime figures, including Chicago Mafia boss Sam Giancana.

A 2015 book alleged Sinatra offered to arrange a hit on Woody Allen for Farrow during her acrimonious 1993 divorce from the director.
