The Golden Girls Years

Handwritten Card from Betty White to Rue

First of all, this is a handwritten card from Betty White. Second, she sent it to Rue McClanahan, which makes it doubly special. Third, this is the second to last handwritten item we have from a fellow “Golden Girl” to Rue; we’re getting to the end of the trove for this...

NOW $81 - Rue's Original Emmy Night Portrait with MJF [SOLD]

You can see this photograph in a clear frame hanging on the wall of Rue’s Manhattan home office in the snapshot posted. Rue loved this portrait because she thought she and Michael J. Fox were both at their physical primes in the image. The original 8″ x 10″ black and white...

Custom Silk Robe from "The Golden Girls"

Rue wore this beautiful, hand-painted silk robe in Season Two of “The Golden Girls.” The piece was designed and made by Judy Evans, the costumer designer for the series. The episode Rue wore it in was entitled “Forgive Me, Father” and it was about Dorothy having an...

One of Rue's Doodle Scripts

Here is one of the few remaining “doodle scripts” that were created and owned by Rue McClanahan. As you probably already know, Rue loved to “doodle,” as she called it. She kept colored markers and pencils in her dressing room on the set of “The Golden Girls”...

NOW $81 - Polaroid of Rue and Betty from "The Golden Palace" [SOLD]

This original Polaroid was shot backstage during production of the short-lived sequel to “The Golden Girls,” “The Golden Palace.” Although Rue liked her scenes with Bea Arthur the best – she said it was like playing high level tennis; just hard hitting the lines...

NOW $81 - Original Grant Tinker Letter to the "Girls" [SOLD]

Here is a real piece of television history for you. More interestingly, here is a well-written, funny letter from a high powered television executive to four television stars, and it offers a glimpse into how people authentically communicate at that level. Guess what? It is just like we...

NOW $81 - Rue Autographed Xerox of Last Script Cover (Her Signature is Original) [SOLD]

We’ve posted a couple of these already and we’re down to our last few. Rue was regularly called upon to donate things to different charities and this was one of the items she’d include in her gift parcels. During filming of the very last episode of “The Golden...

"Blanche's" Lavender Silk Robe from "The Golden Girls"

This is another one of Rue’s hand-painted silk, kimono-style robes from “The Golden Girls.” Judy Evans, the costume designer for the show, designed and created this fabulous piece. Rue wore it during Season Four in the episode where Dorothy is managing a prize fighter. There...

NOW $81 - Rue's Cut Out Piece of a Polaroid from "The Golden Girls"

We realize this is a rather odd item to offer on Rue’s site, but what else could we do? We are definitely not going to throw it away! What happened was Rue didn’t understand how Polaroid pictures were assembled back in the 1980s when this image was captured. The photo was taken...

NOW $81 - Three Personal Photos From Set of "The Golden Girls" [SOLD]

Here is a collection of three photos from when Rue had a gentleman friend (ahem!) visit her at work. You’ll probably recognize the “Cats” costume from that wonderful episode, but we aren’t sure which episode the Polaroid with Rue in the hot pink jacket is from. ...

"Blanche's" Orange Hoodie Set from Multiple Seasons of "The Golden Girls"

Rue wore this orange hoodie set on at least two Seasons of “The Golden Girls,” maybe more. Remember when she found Big Daddy’s bottle hidden in his bible? Or how about when she goes to check on one of her boyfriends and pulls out the keyring with 100s of keys to men’s...

Stunning Rainbow Striped Robe from "The Golden Girls"

What could we possibly say about this piece that you can’t already see for yourself? This is one of those times that Judy Evans, the costume designer for “The Golden Girls”, really hit the ball out of the park – this piece is sensational! Obviously, Rue adored it. She...

One of Rue's Amazing Doodle Scripts

As you probably already know, Rue loved to draw – she called it “doodling.” She kept markers and colored pencils in her dressing room on the set of “The Golden Girls” and she would “doodle” on her scripts during the weekly table reads. Some of her...

Rue's Letterman Jacket From "The Golden Girls"

Here it is, probably the one and only time this item will be available on the market. (And almost surely the one and only of the four in existence – Estelle’s, Bea’s, Betty’s and Rue’s – that will ever see the light of day.) Here is Rue’s personal...

Silk Striped Set from "The Golden Girls"

Rue wore this striped shell and jacket during Season Three of “The Golden Girls.” The shell looks like mattress ticking, so you’d think the pieces were made of cotton, but they are 100% silk. There is a small tear along a seam at the top of one of the jacket pockets as well...
