Actress Katharine Hepburn Honored on Postage Stamp

"Katharine Hepburn, star of such classic movies as 'African Queen' and 'Little Women,' took her place on a U.S. postage stamp this past Wednesday.

The 44-cent stamp was dedicated in ceremonies in Old Saybrook, Conn., and is on sale nationwide.

The red-haired actress becomes the 16th star to be honored on the U.S. Postal Service's Legends of Hollywood stamp series.

During her long career Hepburn won four Academy Awards, the first for her performance in 'Morning Glory' in 1933.

Her other Oscar performances were in 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner,' 1967; 'The Lion in Winter,' 1968, and 'On Golden Pond,' 1981."

Thanks for alerting me(and of course, all your other readers) about this new stamp.

I have been trying to write more snail mail lately, so getting these Hepburn stamps would be a further incentive to send some mail.

One of a kind. Her hair was beautiful.
