Written by admin

The second set of stamps in the Canadians in Hollywood series honours four more Canadians who found fame in Hollywood: Marie Dressler, Raymond Burr, Norma Shearer and Chief Dan George.

Designed by John Belisle and Kosta Tsetsekas, the stamps use images created by Neal Armstrong, the artist who painted the images for the first set of stamps. The background of each stamp is evocative of each star's career: Dressler's shows a scene inspired by a photograph of the tugboat Arthur Foss, featured in the film Tugboat Annie, as the garbage-barge and tugboat Narcissus. Burr's has the Perry Mason courtroom, Shearer's features an art deco scene that is reminiscent of many of her films, and George's depicts a plains scene from Little Big Man.

Date of issue: 30 June 2008
