Her family moved to Washington, D.C., in 1939, when Edwin was appointed to a position in the United States Department of Agriculture; moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1942, when he was appointed as branch manager of the Office of Price Administration;[7] and later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

and toured in a national production of the play. Rowlands costarred with Paul Stewart in the 26-episode syndicated TV series Top Secret (1954–55),[11] and she guest starred on such anthology television series as Robert Montgomery Presents, Appointment with Adventure, Kraft Television Theatre, and Studio One (1955). In 1956, she starred in Middle of the Night opposite Edward G. Robinson. She appeared alongside her husband John Cassavetes

in 1958. In 1961–62, she starred in David Miller's "Lonely are the Brave", with Kirk Douglas

(1976), Opening Night (1977), Gloria (1980; nomination for Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Actress), Tempest (1982), and Love Streams (1984). According to Boston University
Boston University
film scholar Ray Carney, Rowlands sought to suppress an early version of Cassavetes' first film, Shadows, that Carney says he rediscovered after decades of searching.[12] Rowlands also became involved in the screenings of Husbands and Love Streams, according to Carney. The UCLA
UCLA
Film and Television Archive mounted a restoration of Husbands, as it was pruned down (without Cassavetes' consent, and in violation of his contract) by Columbia Pictures
Columbia Pictures
several months after its release, in an attempt to restore as much of the removed content as possible. At Rowlands' request, UCLA
UCLA
created an alternative print with almost ten minutes of content edited out, as Rowlands felt that these scenes were in poor taste. The alternative print is the only one that has been made available for rental.[13] Late career (1985–present)[edit]

Rowlands at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival

In 1985, Rowlands played the mother in the critically acclaimed made-for-TV movie An Early Frost. She won an Emmy
Emmy
for her portrayal of former First Lady of the United States
First Lady of the United States
Betty Ford
Betty Ford
in the 1987 made-for-TV movie The Betty Ford
Betty Ford
Story. In 1988, Rowlands starred in Woody Allen's dramatic film Another Woman. She played Marion Post, a middle-aged professor who is prompted to a journey of self-discovery when she overhears the therapy sessions of another woman (Mia Farrow). The review in Time Out described the character's trajectory: "Marion gets to thinking, and is appalled to realise that so many assumptions about her own life and marriage are largely unfounded: in her desire for a controlled existence, she has evaded the emotional truth about relationships with her best friend (Sandy Dennis), brother (Harris Yulin) and husband (Ian Holm)." Time Out praised the "marvellous" performances in the film, adding, "Rowlands' perfectly pitched approach to a demanding role is particularly stunning."[14] Film4
Film4
called her performance "sublime",[15] while Roger Ebert
Roger Ebert
noted that it marked a considerable change in tone from her work with Cassavetes, thus showing "how good an actress Rowlands has been all along."[16] In 2002, Rowlands appeared in Mira Nair's HBO
HBO
movie Hysterical Blindness, for which she won her third Emmy. She was later seen in The Notebook (2004), which was directed by her son Nick Cassavetes. The same year, she won her first Daytime Emmy

John Hurt
in the gothic thriller The Skeleton Key.[citation needed] In 2007, she played a supporting role opposite Parker Posey

and Melvil Poupaud in Broken English, an independent American feature written and directed by her daughter Zoe Cassavetes. In 2009, she appeared on an episode of Monk ("Mr. Monk and the Lady Next Door"). On March 2, 2010, she appeared on an episode of NCIS as lead character Leroy Jethro Gibbs's former mother-in-law, who is embroiled in a murder investigation.[citation needed] In 2014, she starred in the film adaptation of Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.[17] Personal life[edit] Rowlands was married to John Cassavetes
