DVDs, CDs and VHS Tapes [SOLD]

In the library and in some tall cabinets in the living room of her Manhattan apartment, Rue had heaps of DVD’s, CD’s, VHS tapes and cassettes, and now you can be the proud owner of 3 of each. We’ll include a Certificate of Authenticity from The Estate of Rue McClanahan so, in theory, by highlighting each item on the COA you can make 12 individuals gifts to “The Golden Girls” fans in your life. But quite honestly, the really exciting part of this collection is in two of the three cassette tapes. One, a voice lesson Rue had in 2002 with her sixth husband’s vocal coach, Luba, is excruciating; if you make it through the full tape, you’re much tougher than we are. The other, however, is actually fascinating because it captures the creative process between Rue and her musical collaborator as they worked together at the piano in Rue’s home. They wrote – and Rue produced during a hiatus from “The Golden Girls” – a musical farce entitled: “Oedipus Schmedipus, As Long as You Love Your Mother.” The show opened to rave reviews at The Golden Theatre in Burbank, California in the Summer of 1991. You can hear how much Rue is enjoying the process of creating music and lyrics, and experience how her creative process worked. This is an intimate and very personal recording from inside a star’s private life.
