PRWeb

Charlton Heston, an icon of epic proportions, Academy Award-winning actor, philanthropist and political activist, could soon be featured on a US postage stamp. Starting today, when Heston would have turned 87 years old, longtime publicist Michael Levine, founder of LCO - Levine Communications Office, is organizing a national petition effort to commemorate the life of one of Hollywood's greatest leading men.

The petition will raise awareness nationally to convince the Citizen Stamp Advisory Commission that Heston deserves to be placed on a postage stamp. Fans throughout the country are invited to send an email, letter and/or sign the petition in support of the effort to successfully implement this historic Hollywood figure into the US postal stamp collection.

"If Hollywood had a Mount Rushmore, his face would be on it," said Levine, "A postage stamp would be the next best thing."

Heston is one of the most dedicated and talented actors of our time. His films are highly regarded as some of the most successful movies in motion picture history. Heston earned two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe Award, three Emmy Award nominations and the Kennedy Center Honors: Lifetime Achievement Award. As a respected actor he was a six-time president of the Screen Actors Guild and president of the American Film Institute. In 2003, Heston received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Bush. In honor of Heston's wide-range success that exceeded beyond his Hollywood career, Heston is a more-than-deserving figure to be featured on a US postage stamp.
