Cary Grant stamps
    #1149474 - 12/17/02 04:30 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

"Most of my hero's don't appear on no stamps" - Chuck D.

I'd love to be able to send a letter to someone with a Timothy Leary or a Albert Hoffman or a Ken Kesey stamp. Unfortunately, most of my heros will never be recognized by the United States Postal Service.

I've found the closest thing to a Timothy Leary stamp. The post office is currently offering Cary Grant Stamps. Cary Grant was one of Hollywood's most famous leading men. He also took about 100 acid trips I believe. He wasn't anywhere near as outspoken as Leary about his LSD conversion, but he did publicly state that he loved LSD. Here are some quotes from Grant himself...

In reply to:

"All my life, I've been searching for peace of
mind. I'd explored yoga and hypnotism and
made several attempts at mysticism. Nothing
really seemed to give me what I wanted until
this treatment."




In reply to:

"I have been born again. I have been through a
psychiatric experience which has completely
changed me. I was horrendous. I had to face
things about myself which I never admitted,
which I didn't know were there. Now I know that I hurt every woman I ever
loved. I was an utter fake, a self-opinionated bore, a know-all who knew
very little. I found I was hiding behind all kinds of defenses, hypocrisies and
vanities. I had to get rid of them layer by layer. The moment when your
conscious meets your subconscious is a hell of a wrench. With me there
came a day when I saw the light."




Later in the 60's I think he stopped taking it, but he was there for a while. The chapter of Cary Grants life when he loved LSD will always be a part of his story.

So I think I may buy these stamps. This is the closest i'll ever come to having an official(and well deserved) Tim Leary stamp.

Wow! I didn't know he did acid. He's been in some good movies.

Yeah, you're right.

I don't think these are offical stamps though.

Hehehe... Yeah, that was back in the fifties, when some psychiatrists were using it for therapy. Cool! Thanks for pointing that out. :cool:

A Robert Mitchum stamp would be cool too, as he had quite the drug history... :smirk:

My favorite would be North by Northwest, followed by Notorious and To Catch A Thief. I will have to get some of those stamps.

Yeah, those were great! I also liked "Charade." That was a classic. Some of the early screwball comedies from the thirties he did with Katherine Hepburn were great too! That one film, "Bringing up Baby," was fucking hilarious! :grin: :cool:

Question: Cary Grant was born in England, not America. I thought people on US Postage Stamps had to be born in the states, or is that just if you want to run for President?

  :laugh: I have "Charade" on tape.  I'll have to watch it again.  I didn't appreciate it the first time.  It has Audrey Hepburn, George Kennedy, Walter Matthau, and James Coburn too! With musical score by Henry Mancini!  I would like to know more about Grant's acid trips!  What must it have been like to dose government acid back then!  That's crazy!  :laugh:

Yeah, check it out again. I liked it. I believe a critic once called it the most Hitchockian movie that Hitchcock never made...

Rocky VI will be the most Stallonean film Stallone has ever directed.  But I digress. :grin:
