A US Commemorative Stamp for Van Johnson

A devoted Van Johnson fan is trying to get a commemorative US stamp for the popular actor from the '40s and '50s. You can read her story here and sign the official petition here.

Van Johnson was in so many good movies. He was excellent.

He should have a stamp. I hope there will be one for him.
I may have seen "The last time I saw Paris," if I did it would be the only movie of his I saw. I have been to a lot of the places named in his titles, starting with "The White Cliffs of Dover." I may list them on my blog if I decide to push his petition.

Titles with places I've been:
The White Cliffs of Dover, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Week-End at the Waldorf, When in Rome, Plymouth Adventure John Alden, Brigadoon, The Last Time I Saw Paris, Siege at Red River, 23 Paces to Baker Street, La muerte de un president Texas, Da Corleone a Brooklyn
The Sicilian Boss, and The Purple Rose of Cairo.

The Brigadoon, we saw and walked across the bridge in Ayrshire, Scotland.
Wikipedia says: Brigadoon (disambiguation). The Brig o' Doon, sometimes called the Auld Brig or Old Bridge of Doon is a late medieval bridge in Ayrshire.
Ayrshire cattle originated there and the poet Robert Burns was born there, between Ayr and Doon. We visited his birthplace, also saw a lot of Red Ayrshire cattle.

I have to admit that I'm not familiar with any of his movies.
