Stay Tuned…New items will be regularly added to the Estate Sale. Please keep checking back for more great things from The Estate of Rue!
Featured ItemsRue's Glass Clock [On Hold]
This glass clock was made by the “Nautica” company and so we think it is supposed to resemble a sail, and it does. Rue’s glass clock needs a new battery. It measures 5.75″ high, 3.75″ wide, and 1.75″ deep. Rue’s glass clock comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175Rue's Black And Gold Caftan [On Hold]
Oh, please don’t think that Rue McClanahan suffered from dandruff when you look at the shoulders of her black caftan, because it is absolutely not true, those white specks are actually plaster dust. You see, since we had already rented the space for Rue’s café, and since they hadn’t started on construction yet, we decided to use the space for this quarter’s photo shoots. Well, Julio, Rue’s handyman, was doing some core samples under the existing drywall in the space to see what was underneath – by the way, he found MARBLE SLABS(!) – anyway, when he dug into the plasterboard, a cloud of plaster dust settled on everything. Rue’s black and gold caftan was made by “Santé Classics,” it is a size “L,” it will be dusted before we send it to you, and it will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275 NOW $137.50Rue's Bathroom Keychain From Production of "Oklahoma!" [On Hold]
Every production has a different budget, and that budget will determine the quality of the cast and crew perks. As opposed to the Tiffany & Co. engraved sterling silver keychain Rue received for “Six Dance Lessons…” – posted above – when she did a production of “Oklahoma!” she received a plastic keychain with the name of the character she was playing on it. Rue attached a elastic band to be worn around one’s wrist and then attached the bathroom key to it so she wouldn’t loose it or forget it inside. She even wrote a note on the back to warn people looking for a memento of their own not to take it! Rue’s “Aunt Eller” keychain comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50"Wicked" Signed Cookbook and Signed Playbill with Publicity Card - $79 [SOLD]
While Rue was playing Madame Morrible in the hit Broadway Musical “Wicked,” the cast and crew released a second edition of their charitable cookbook. Rue included a questionable recipe from her Aunt Wenonah that actually involves pouring a can of 7-Up into a baking dish with dough! We made it, and guess what? It is delicious! Anyway, the cookbook is signed by Rue and we’ll include an original signed playbill and publicity card, too. It measures 5.75″ x 8.5″, is 131 pages long, and contains over 65 recipes. Comes with a 4″ x 6″ print of Rue on stage with Ben Vereen as The Wizard – just because we love that picture – and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$79.00Rue's "Prompt Script" From "Nuncrackers" [On Hold]
Rue loved all the nun shows she made for and with Danny Goggin. It was a combination of the writing and the team; she really had a ball whenever she went to work on a Danny Goggin project. This is Rue’s original, 8.5″ x 11″, spiral bound “Prompt Script” from the show. The piece comes with prints of the photos posted and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Signed Publicity Still From 1970 Movie [On Hold]
Do you remember Eli Wallach? He made a zillion movies and worked right up until the end of his long life. He was married to the beautiful and equally talented Anne Jackson for something like 60 years. Mr. Wallach was a real winner in the game of life. Rue was friends with the couple for many decades. She and Mr. Wallach worked together for the first time in 1970 when they made the movie “The People Next Door.” Rue wrote about the movie, and one of her hilarious lines from the script, in her memoir – “My First Five Husband…And The Ones Who Got Away” – and this original 8″ x 10″ signed publicity shot was reprinted in the book. In fact, the publishers sticker is still on the back of this picture. Rue’s signed publicity still – signed by both Rue and Eli Wallach – comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
