The U.S. Postal Service announced today that first-class stamps will be issued honoring four great American film directors and their most noteworthy pictures, reports TheWrap.com.

In a statement, Samuel Pulcrano, U.S. Postal Service vice president of corporate communications, said: “With these stamps, we’re bringing these filmmakers out from behind their cameras and putting them in the spotlight so that we can learn more about them."

Collectively, the four filmmakers accumulated 15 Oscars.

The set is officially billed as the Great Film Directors First-Class Forever stamps, the story notes.
