Russia - Actress in Black & White

June 23, 2016

This lovely black and white card came to me from Russia.  It is of an actress that I hadn't heard of before, although I believe that she moved to Canada in her later years. The card was sent by Ivan and going by what he wrote, he is a big movie fan!

He wrote, "Hello! My name is Ivan.  I'm from Moscow.  This is a portrait of the famous Hollywood actress of Russian origin, Lila Kedrova.  I'm a big fan of the old movie.  My favourite director is Francois Ozon.  Especially for you I stuck a stamp Postcrossing first type.  And Stamp Russian-Laos friendship.  Good Luck!"

Lila Kedrova's IMDb profile is here and her Wikipedia page is here.

I like the stamps...I also like that Ivan mentioned them in his writing.  When I postcross, I'm afraid I often just stick the stamps on afterwards, I rarely write about them!
