Get Your James Stewart Stamps on Friday

Posted on Monday, August 13th, 2007 10:47 PM by Scott Jentsch

The U.S. Postal Service will be releasing its latest edition in its "Legends of Hollywood" series with one depicting movie legend James Stewart. I had announced this release originally back on November 3, 2006 (when the stamps were still marked with the 39¢ price).

The description on the Postal Service web site is as follows:

As the 13th honoree in the Legends of Hollywood series, James Stewart (1908-1997) was a quintessential American film hero whose lanky physique, drawling speech and naturalistic acting style came to personify "Everyman." He starred in more than 80 movies. Stewart served as a pilot in the United States Army Air Forces during World War II, winning multiple decorations. The stamp is a portrait of Stewart based on a publicity photograph for The Stratton Story. The painting on the selvage shows Stewart in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the 1939 film for which he received his first Academy Award® nomination for "best actor."
