Bette Davis Stars in 2008 Postage Stamps

A face that will tease you, and please you and perhaps unease you is coming to the post office next year, it’s those Bette Davis eyes.
On the 100th anniversary of her birth the great actress will be honored on a commemorative stamp, the 14th in the Legends of Hollywood Series.

A 10-time Academy Award nominee, Davis won twice, for her roles in “Dangerous” (1935) and “Jezebel” (1938).
And speaking of centennials, the same year Davis was born, actor Jack Norworth wrote “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” the song still famed in the seventh inning stretch. Postal officials hope buyers will root, root, root for a stamp based on a 19th-century baseball card recalling that special melody next year.

Also in 2008 the post office will launch a new multiyear Flags of Our Nation series, a 60-stamp set scheduled to include the Stars and Stripes as well as the flags of each state, the District of Columbia and territories.
