Featured ItemsRue's Liz Claiborne Long-Billed Cap [On Hold]
Rue truly regretted all the sun damage she inflicted on her skin when she was a girl and young lady, and so she made certain to protect herself from the harmful rays of the sun as she aged. This Liz Claiborne cap was one of her protection tools because it has a super long bill. It had the added benefit of hiding her face when she wanted to run out for a quick errand and go around her Manhattan neighborhood unrecognized. Rue’s hat comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.

The matching saucer is 5.75″ across. Rue’s golden cup and saucer comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
$275Rue's Heavily Annotated Copy of "A Streetcar Named Desire" [On Hold]
Rue McClanahan played a very famous “Blanche” before the “Blanche” we all know her for; she was “Blanche DuBois” in a production of the Tennessee Williams’ play “A Streetcar Named Desire” at The Pasadena Playhouse way back in the 1950s. She later said that “Blanche” was part of the inspiration she used as the “Blanche” on “The Golden Girls.” This is Rue’s original, heavily annotated play from that performance. Rue wrote EVERYTHING about her performance in this volume: stage instructions, prop locations, motivations, emotions her character would be feeling. If you study acting, this is a glimpse into a master’s process. In addition to a poignant note handwritten by the director, this ultra-rare and exciting piece even has one of Rue’s first little margin “doodles” in the corner of a page with the silly phrase that Rue sometimes said under her breath when exasperated with something or someone – “pish tosh” – written inside. Rue’s copy of a famous play she starred in over 60-years ago comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
