"The U.S. Postal Service immortalized one of America’s true cinematic treasures—the only recipient of four Academy Awards for Best Actress—on what would have been her 103rd birthday, May 12. The stamp issued today pays tribute to Katharine Houghton Hepburn, known to many as simply “Kate,” a great actress whose almost 50-year career made her an icon of the silver screen and a trailblazer for independent, progressive women."
The release says Hepburn is the 16th inductee in its "Legends of Hollywood" series. 16th? I would have thought Top 10 for sure, certainly before Lucille Ball (No. 7). Anyway, I'd love to get a Kate in the mail, so send me a letter.
