This week's theme is people honoured on stamps. I've chosen two world famous women. Firstly Marlene Dietrich (1901 - 1992), singer and actress (extensive bio on wiki here). I really like Marlene Dietrich's music. The stamp was issued in Germany in 1997 as part of the Famous Women series.
Eva Peron passed away in 1952 at the young age of 33. The stamps were issued by Argentina in 1952 and used well into the 1950s. Although I am not a fan of musicals nor a theatre-goer, I love the movie Evita. I was probably first aware of Eva Peron when Julie Covington's version of 'Don't Cry for me Argentina' was in the charts in 1976/7, a song that always sends a chill down my spine. You can watch the video of that version here.
