Judy Garland - Mail Carrier

According to Karen Risener of Flushing, NY in the USPS NewsLink, Judy Garland played the part of a letter carrier in the 1943 movie Girl Crazy.

Actor Mickey Rooney asks Garland, as she is standing beside a truck with “U.S. Mail” painted on it, “What do you do?” She replies, “I deliver the mail.” He replies, “They ought to put your picture on a stamp.”

Shown above is a USPS photo taken at the stamp dedication held at Carnegie Hall over the weekend. From left to right are Judy Garland’s son and daughter Joe and Lorna Luft, USPS Chief Marketing Officer Anita Bizzotto and Garland’s grandchildren Jesse and Vanessa Richards.
