The stamp comes out May 12, her birthday. The Hartford born Hepburn was born in 1907.
Whether it was Bogart or Spencer Tracy, or John Wayne for that matter, she always proved a strong foil for her male co-stars. As a glamour queen, aging housewife, strong attorney, hard boiled reporter or headstrong missionary, her performances always made audiences, cry, laugh and applaud. A true star.
The stamp features a publicity still from the film Woman of the Year (MGM, 1942), photographed by Clarence S. Bull.
