Rue remarked, and wrote about, how challenging it was to get an agent when she was first starting out in “the show business,” as Betty White calls it. But once she became a star, they all wanted her to sign with them. Rue chose APA – Agency for the Performing Arts – because of their central belief that actors should be represented across the board: with movies, television, the stage, for concerts, for books, etc… Rue, of course, liked to do different things and so she needed an agent that would sell her to everyone. It was not unusual for Rue to work a season of “The Golden Girls” and then do a movie or two and even a play during the show’s hiatus. Additionally, APA kept her busy endorsing products with photo shoots in magazines and even doing commercials on her days off. Rue was very pleased with APA’s representation of her. This two-paged original agreement has two of Rue’s original signatures on it. Comes with 8″ x 10″ prints of the glamour shots shown and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
