Wow! I have to share this story!
I'm a French high school teacher. Today, in class, we were viewing the 2016 movie "La chasse-galerie", a classic French Canadian legend.
December 1888. One of the main characters discovers a stash of stolen letters that were destined for him. As he flicked through the stash, I jumped on the spacebar to pause the movie and told my students "THESE ARE NOT THE RIGHT STAMPS!!!"
George VI yellow, blue and green Canadian ~1937 stamps were affixed on every letter (in three different scenes!) (Sc#231, 234, 235) That's 50 years ahead of its time !
George was born in Dec. 1895, 7 years AFTER the letters from the movie were written ! It should have been Queen Victoria on these stamps!
My students were shaking their heads. They know how much I care about stamps ! "Only you Madame would notice such a detail !"
(I also do understand that everything from that letter in the picture is wrong, such as the printed address and the cancel!)
It still bothers me!!
