I'm reviving this long dormant topic because I've recently seen stamps in a TV series that's so new, it hasn't even finished its run yet. I'm referring to the series "Atlantic Crossing" now showing on PBS's Masterpiece. It's the story of the struggle of the Norwegian nation, and in particular the Norwegian royal family in World War II after the country was invaded by the nazis. It focuses in particular on Crown Princess Martha and how she escaped with her children early in the war, first to Sweden, and then to the United States where she was welcomed and aided by President Franklin Roosevelt. In one scene in I think it's episode 4, we see FDR presenting a stock book with Norwegian stamps to Martha's son, the then 3 or 4 year old Prince Harald, who would eventually go on to become the present King Harald V. FDR asks the young boy if he recognizes the man on the stamps,and Harald replies that it's his grandfather, and indeed they are the stamps which appear to be the King Haakon VII definitives issued by Norway in 1937-38, Scott 177-180. The actor who plays Haakon on the series looks remarkably like him, I'm enjoying it very much, and Kyle McLachlan does a terrific job as FDR

This 2013 movie which I just saw for the first time today had an extended scene with philatelic discussion in a quite crowded Paris, France stamp shop. Later over dinner a discussion of the number of bird stamps issued by one country, Romania I believe, was discussed.

Short title: Last Love.
Long Title: Mr. Morgan's Last Love

Stars, Michael Caine and Clémence Poésy.
The 5 cent "Movie Stamp"

As small holding of stamps, covers were offered with a postal card with film images from the movie attached in the Scott Ward sale, Daniel F. Kelleher Auctions, LLC Sale - 734 The Ward Collection of the U.S. Parcel Post Issue - February 20, 2020 as Lot 1129. Estimate was $500-$750 with the hammer being $1200.00 without buyers premium, tax and shipping.

Edit: Foxcatcher from 2014 is not in this tread (it is mentioned here: ). It is a good movie about a disturbing subject with John du Pont as the focus. He owned the 1 cent British Gianna along with other stamps as a collector. The movie explains why he was forced to sell since he could not take the collection with him while serving 13-30 years in prison for murder. Convicted in 1997, he died in prison in 2010.

The other is more recent, 1993's Heart and Souls with Robert Downey Jr. part of which has one of the deceased souls having to get a sheet of zeppelin stamps he once helped steal back to their rightful owner before he can move on.

Thank you modern_who for this. For the past year I have been trying to remember where I saw the scene where a chubby boy had been swindled out of a stamp. But I thought it was an Inverted Jenny. Maybe I'm thinking of another movie/tv show.
