Tyrone Power - United States Postage Stamp 2014
by SBF member, Loren Ruhl

Tyrone Power - United States Postage Stamp 2014 We have a special request from SBF member Loren Ruhl.
Loren was best friends with Tyrone Power and would like to do everything possible to honour Tyrone's memory by supporting an effort to have him portrayed on a commemorative US postage stamp for his Centenary on 5 May, 2014.
Tyrone was not only a mega movie star and stage actor, he was also a decorated World War II Marine Corps Pilot. He passed away at the age of 44, on the set of his last movie, Solomon and Sheba, in 1958.
If you would like to give your support to this cause and to know more about it, please click the like button on the dedicated Facebook page:

Thanks Loren for sharing it with all of us!
