Free Screening of Stamp Related Films at National Postal Museum

The National Postal Museum is having a free screening of the following stamp related films this Saturday, Jan. 10, in Washington, D.C.

Jezebel (1938) stars Bette Davis as a headstrong, independent southern belle who shocks her New Orleans community with her spitfire behavior and a certain red dress.

Also starring Henry Fonda, Jezebel won Davis an Academy Award. Often playing complex characters, Davis set the standard for women in the film industry.

Davis was honored with a 2008 Legends of Hollywood stamp as was Henry Fonda in 2005.

Hallelujah 1929)- was recently featured on the Vintage Black Cinema stamp shown here. It was one of the first major-studio films to feature an all-black cast.

Hallelujah is director King Vidor's first talkie. Hallelujah was honored with a 2008 stamp along with four other films: Black and Tan (1929), The Sport of the Gods (1921), Princess Tam-Tam (1935), and Caldonia (1945).
