Postal Service To Release A Marilyn Monroe Stamp

This U.S. postage stamp featuring actress Marilyn Monroe was being unveiled today at the trendy Planet Hollywood restaurant in New York.

The 32-cent Monroe stamp will be the first in a series honoring legends of Hollywood. It will be released some time this year.

The stamp carries a reproduction of Monroe's signature and artwork of Monroe that post-office publicity describes as epitomizing "the explosive combination of talent and vulnerable beauty that continues to enrapture America and the world."
