Featured ItemsRue's Emmy Award
Of course, Rue hung on to the dress and earrings she wore to the Primetime Emmy Awards in 1987, and she also hung on to the Emmy Award she took home that magical night for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.” All three items are part of this package and they come with an 8 1/2” x 11” framed glossy photograph of Rue in the dress, wearing the earrings, and holding her Emmy. See clip here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_1g7oY1Xw-g (Rue was miffed Howie mispronounced her name – twice!).
(You didn’t think we were seriously going to sell Rue’s Emmy, did you?)Rue's "Prompt Script" From "Nuncrackers"
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.
$225Trash Basket From Rue's Home Office
You can see this trash basket on the floor of the home office in Rue’s Manhattan apartment next to Rue and her bestie, Sue. The piece measures 12.5″ tall and is 12.5″ wide, too. We don’t think this was necessarily made to be a trash basket, but that is what Rue used it for. The piece will come with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$225Rue's Mini Avon Breast Cancer Awareness Pin
I think I’ve told you this story before: I remember when Rue told me about her battle with breast cancer. It was a beautiful spring evening and we were riding in the back of a limousine through Central Park. She told me about the fear when she was first told the news, how she almost fainted, and about the horrors of treatment. However, the story had a happy ending because Rue McClanahan beat breast cancer and was alive to sit in the back of that limo with me and enjoy the gorgeous spring foliage in Central Park. Rue gave a lot of herself to support breast cancer awareness, early diagnosis, and support for the victims of the wretched disease. This is a mini-pin that Rue used to wear on her lapel. The pink ribbon was made by Avon and it measures one inch long. Rue’s breast cancer awareness pin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$175 NOW $87.50NOW $80! Rue's Wooden Bead Purse [SOLD]
In 1989 Rue made a movie entitled “The Man in The Brown Suit.” Although the action is supposedly set in South Africa, it was actually filmed in Spain. Since she was so close, Rue hopped over to Africa, to Morocco, and did some site seeing. Naturally, being Rue, site seeing included shopping, and she purchased this wooden bead purse during her trip. The bag measures 5″ x 8″ with a 22″ strap. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
$275 NOW $80!Black and White Original Cardboard Mounted Rue Portrait From 1967
Rue owned two of these blow ups from a 1967 portrait shot by Jacques Cartier; he was the founder of The Hartford Stage Company where she performed for a season. We already posted the framed one that hung in Rue’s home office – you can see that one in the photos posted – but this is probably the one you can see without a frame in the photo taken in Rue’s Cloisters of Fort Lee home in 1972. This is a large piece – it measures 13.75″ high and 10.5″ wide, and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
