In 1993, the first female film star to appear alone on a postage stamp was Grace Kelly. A commemorative stamp was issued simultaneously in the US & Monaco. On the US stamp, she was described as Grace Kelly, while on the Monaco stamp she was described as Princess Grace. (Source: Biography of Grace Kelly)

On the male film star side, there was a series of stamps called "legends of hollywood" whichwas published. James Cagney was the fifth on this list to be commemorated on his 100th birth anniversary on July 22, 1999. The others who made it to the list before him were Alfred Hitchcock (1998), Humphrey Bogart (1997), James Dean (1996) and Marilyn Monroe (1995). Source: (TimeWarner.com)
