The new Katharine Hepburn stamp (I wish they would have used a pic of her in that bug costume from Christopher Strong (1933); that would have been too fabulous!)--The Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center

More from the TCM Film Fest: the screening of Joan Crawford’s home movies, presented by her grandson, and a bit about the Temple Drake screening/restoration (I love the name of this blog.)-- What Makes Jeffy Run?

This pic of Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman is the definition of happiness— Via Margutta 51

More about Marilyn Monroe’s writings-- Guardian

A review of the Torrid Zone (1940). Ann Sheridan and James Cagney are hilarious in this movie; I don’t know why it isn’t better known.-- And Then I Watched


  1. If we'd only known a stamp was in the works Ivan. We could have campaigned for this!

  2. I liked the stamp, classic! I haven't seen Christopher Strong, do you recommend it? Or is it just the costume?

  3. Very classy stamp. I'm going to need to get several sheets.

  4. Clara--The bug costume is definitely worth the watch on its own, but I did like Christopher Strong. It was interesting to see Hepburn be the other woman onscreen; it was an unusual performance. I do think they picked a great shot for this stamp by the way!

    Tom--I know I'm going to do the same, but I never know what to do with these special edition stamps once I get them. I actually started using the Gary Cooper stamps because I couldn't decide if I wanted to put them in an album, frame, or what.
