We had a meeting with the choreographer for Rue’s one-woman show and Rue wanted to pick out some pictures of her dancing. The documentary film crew was filming that day and the first image is of us walking out of her office having found the binder of pictures she wanted. There it is, right in front of the camera with Rue in the background, the 65-year-old picture of a 13-year-old Rue en pointe – a BIG DEAL in every dancer’s journey. Rue was so proud of the photograph she even used it in her memoir. In fact, this original picture still has the publisher’s sticker on the back which they placed there when they collected the images for “My First Five Husbands…And the Ones Who Got Away.” Rue pointed out that these were her first toe shoes and that her Mother made her tutu. This photo is a rare treasure. You’ll probably have to get it custom framed since it is not a standard size – it is longer than a standard 8″ x 10″ frame and thinner, too. In the last image we have here, you can see Rue and the choreographer studying her photos in the living room of her Manhattan apartment, and this photo is right there front and center. This original portrait comes with prints of the screen grabs shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
