The latest stamp in the Legends of Hollywood series will honor Katharine Hepburn, one of Screen Actors Guild’s founding members from 1933. The stamp goes on sale May 12, the late actor’s birthday, and features a publicity still from the film Woman of the Year (MGM, 1942), photographed by Clarence Sinclair Bull.
SAG honored Hepburn in 1979 with its highest honor, the Life Achievement Award.
