Charlton Heston's former publicist launched an online petition drive Monday to get the "Ten Commandments" star featured on a U.S. postage stamp.
“If Hollywood had a Mount Rushmore, his face would be on it,” said Michael Levine, who launched www.CharltonHestonStamp.com. “A postage stamp would be the next best thing.”
Levine's national effort is aimed at the Citizen Stamp Advisory Commission, which evaluates stamp proposals made by the public and then issues recommendations to the postmaster general.
The petition drive was launched on Monday, which would've been Heston's 87th birthday. Heston died in 2008 at age 85. The Oscar-winning actor starred in such classics as "Ben-Hur," "The Greatest Show on Earth" and "Planet of the Apes."
