The Duke Gets Stamp

Stamp to Honor Movie Hero John Wayne

He crossed "Rio Bravo" and "Red River." He fought at "Fort Apache" and on "The Sands of Iwo Jima." He was "The Quiet Man" and won an Oscar as Rooster Cogburn in "True Grit," but everyone knew him as the Duke. Next month, movie hero John Wayne will get his own postage stamp.

On Sept. 9, the U.S. Postal Service will release the 37-cent stamp, the latest in the Legends of Hollywood series. The first day of issue ceremony will be at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, and the stamps will go on sale nationwide the next day.

I can't say I've ever watched many John Wayne movies - - but I think this is kind of cool to be on a postage stamp.

You Said

I wasn't a Wayne fan, either, until I actually watched "True Grit" about three months ago.

Worthy. Definitely worthy.

When I find a John Wayne movie on TV, the remote stops clicking!
Odd factoid: The Duke has been dead for over 20 years yet is usually voted a top 10 favorite actor by the public :)
