    I think this was her one big Hollywood leading role.

    Too bad it was the wrong one (for both of them).

    Yeah, she was in her 60s when she landed the Sophia role, but it took her three auditions to get it, because she didn't look elderly enough the first two times.

    My girlfriend is going to be devastated when she gets home and hears this. It's strange, but I think the only comparison I can make is that to her, "The Golden Girls" show was/is sort of like Transformers to me (or all of us here on this board). It's a show that she grew up with and was something that she could turn to when she needed to be cheered up or otherwise escape for a few moments from life. So long, Estelle.

    here's a couple of my favorite quotes

    Sophia: Let me tell you girls the three most important things I learned about life: number one, hold fast to your friends; number two, there's no such thing as security; and number three, don't go see "Ishtar." Woof.

    Sophia: It's a nightmare, we've been visited by the Yutz of Christmas Past.

    betty,rue,and beatrice had to help her with her lines

    From imdb.com:

    "Getty played mother to Bea Arthur on "The Golden Girls" (1985), however, Bea is actually 15½ months older than Estelle. Estelle being born July 25, 1923 and Bea was born May 13, 1922."
