As a stamp collector, my eyes naturally focus on these tiny perforated pieces of paper anywhere in the community, or on television. Here I am sharing some cropped screenshots from the Hawaii Five-O television series. Specifically, these are from season four (1971), episode two.

32:11 (32 minutes, 11 seconds into the show)
A box containing several stamps is visible. At least four are the 6¢ dark blue grey Eisenhower stamps. A fifth stamp is upside down, thus limiting our ability to identify it.


32:15 (32 minutes, 15 seconds into the show)
The woman removes a stamp from the box. I cannot definitively determine which stamp she took. It appears to be one of the 6¢ dark blue grey stamps.


32:20 (32 minutes, 20 seconds into the show)
The woman applies an 8¢ deep claret Eisenhower stamp to the envelope.


41:55 (41 minutes, 55 seconds into the show)
The addressed recipient holds the canceled envelope in his hand. It is franked with a 6¢ dark blue grey Eisenhower stamp.


Oops, the stamp's value decreased by 2¢ while in transit.



Context: postal rates increased from 6¢ to 8¢ on 16 May 1971. This episode of Hawaii Five-O originally aired on 21 September 1971.

Have yet to see L'École des facteurs (Jacques Tati)
But last week saw
Jour de fête (The Big Day) is a 1949 French comedy film starring Jacques Tati in his feature film directorial debut as an inept and easily distracted mailman in a backward French village. Shot largely in and around Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre, where Tati had lived during the Occupation, most of the actors were unknown and villagers served as extras.

If Gen Y members want a look at life in the gentle 1950's
this is it. Very nostalgic for Moi.

In the Hawaii Five-0 episode, while the same writer wrote both addresses, the writing is different on each version. Did somebody lose (or maybe mail) the first prop letter? The last image shows the correct zip code(!) but no street address which it should have had. Nyah.

I picked up the BFI's Jacques Tati Collection for around a tenner on eBay - Playtime and Mon Oncle are my favourites.

Random other screenshots of postage stamps in Hawaii Five-O.


Season 5 Episode 17: My compliments to the prop person who made this cover for a kidnapper's letter. It depicts a then 8-year-old Kennedy stamp (Scott #1246) and 24-year-old Gordon Low stamp (Scott #974).


Season 5 Episode 16: Air mail stamp (Scott #C78-C82) on a cover between Hawaiian law enforcement agencies.

Your Hawaii Five O post could actually be put into a general topic thread of stamps highlighted in film and TV. Probably one of the the best films that surprises the viewer that the whole thing is centered around philately is the great film with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, "Charade" from 1963. Highly recommend viewing to cineastes and philatelists.
