LOS ANGELES, CA.- Legendary Hollywood film director John Huston is being honored with a postage stamp.
The U.S. Postal Service says the Oscar-winning director of 1948's "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" says the stamp will be issued next year.
The art on the stamp is inspired by the 1941 movie "The Maltese Falcon." It depicts Humphrey Bogart holding the statue of the falcon.
Huston's credits also include the Academy Award nominated films "The Asphalt Jungle" (1950),"Moulin Rouge" (1952) and "Prizzi's Honor" (1985).
The stamp is part of a four-stamp Great Film Directors series. The Postal Service announced earlier this month that John Ford and Frank Capra are other directors depicted in the series. The remaining director and the date of issue will be announced later.
