Sign the online petition to honor the legacy of George Romero and give him his own “Legends of Hollywood” USPS Stamp
With the sad passing of one of the genre’s greatest names, there’s never been a better time to commemorate the life, legacy, and incredibly influential career of George Romero. (Click here to review our tribute to this filmmaking legend.)
George Romero was an American-Canadian filmmaker and editor, best known for his series of gruesome and satirical horror films about an imagined zombie apocalypse, beginning with Night of the Living Dead and notably continuing on with Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead. His other works contributed include The Crazies, Creepshow, Martin, Monkey Shines, and The Dark Half.
We here at Morbidly Beautiful, like the rest of the horror community, are deeply impacted by this loss. We will greatly miss Romero, but we will always cherish the amazing memories he has given us. That’s why we’re honored to sponsor a petition to give the father of the zombie film his own official USPS stamp.
In 1995, legendary Marilyn Monroe was the first installment in the Legends of Hollywood commemorative stamp series issued by the USPS. This stamp series is dedicated to actors, actresses and directors who have made a lasting impact on the motion picture industry and whose work have enchanted and captivated audiences of all ages. Since that first release, other popular classic Hollywood stars like Humphrey Bogart, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant and Gary Cooper, have joined Marilyn’s ranks and become members of this exclusive club.
In addition to the Legends of Hollywood series, our extraordinary film directors — Frank Capra, John Ford, John Huston and Billy Wilder — have also been immortalized as part of the “Great Film Directors First-Class Forever” stamps series.
Our hope is that the Romero will join the ranks of these Silver Screen legends, receiving well deserved recognition for his countless contributions to the genre and to cinema as a whole.
Please sign the below petition, and let’s give this legend the loving memory that he deserves.
