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!
