"The Golden Girls," clockwise from top: Rue McClanahan, Betty
White, Estelle Getty and Bea Arthur

`Golden GM' Getty:
A Golden Opportunity

MICHAEL ELKIN

Special to The Jewish News

H

ollywood — A.C.
Nielsen has packaged
the perfect present for
Estelle Getty — glitzy ratings
for her "Golden Girls," the most
successful new comedy on tele-
vision this past season.
At 62, Getty has become a
star — even if few recognize her
without her star-white wig,
which she dons to portray
Sophia, the caustic doyenne of a
Miami household of older
women whose sole Miami vice
may be an extra daily ration of
prunes.
Joining Beatrice Arthur,
whose mother she plays, Betty
White and Rue McClanahan in
a pristine apartment loaded
with the bric-a-brac of comedy,
Getty launches rather than de-
livers lines. Even her apologies
seem like loaded missiles:
"Sorry," she excuses herself
after a snappy remark, "I ha-
ven't had sex ir 15 years. It's
beginning to get on my nerves."
But Eitelle Getty, born to a
Jewish family on New York's
Lower East Side, seems imper-
turbable as she sits for ques-
tions here. The frump dress she
normally wears as the Sicilian-
born Sophia has been mothbal-
led for the moment — Getty is
nattily attired, coiffed and con-
fident, a pretty woman with a
pretty good idea of what she
wants from life.
And she seems to be getting
exactly what she wants — in-
cluding critical hosannahs for
her portrayal of Mrs. Beckoff in
the Tony Award-winning "Torch
Song Trilogy," which she played
on Broadway and around the
country, including a stint two

years ago in Philadelphia.
Motherhood suits Getty well
— she played Barry Manilow's
mom in the television film
Copacabana and Cher's mother
in Mask.
But it is as Mrs. Beckoff and
Sophia that Getty has gotten
the most attention. So, tell me,
Estelle, if you were to put both
of these feisty moms in a
cramped room for a week, who
would come out the survivor?
"Hmmm," she says with a
smile. "I guess it would be Mrs.
Beckoff. She's more in touch
with what is happening in the
world." Pause. "But I guess I
could make an argument either
way."
She isn't about to slight
Sophia, a role that netted "Gol-
den Girl" Getty a Golden Globe
Awaid this season as best per-
former in a comedy television
show.
"You know, I get a lot of mail
from kids about Sophia," she
says. "I guess that's because she
talks back to adults."
Audiences seem to like what
they hear. "Every actor brings
his or her own self into a role,"
says Getty. "My own kids see a
lot of me in this part." She
chuckles., "But then, they know
me rather well."
What they know is that Mom
is a battler — especially when
the battlefield being invaded
has to do with her heritage. "I
came from an era when
everyone (in the business)
changed their name, but not
me," says. "My maiden name
was Scher and I wasn't about to
be embarrassed by it."
And if others tried to hide
their heritage of Yiddishkeit,
well, not Estelle Scher, who
proudly says, "I started out on
the Yiddish stage. I used to
speak Yiddish to my mother in
