COVID Card #167

October 19, 2020 | 0 comments

Emrich Nicholson was an art director for the film industry in the 1940s and 1950s. I don’t believe I’ve seen a single movie that he worked on. I will have to remedy that as, based on the movie posters that one might easily mistake for pulp fiction book covers, he worked on some real treasures. Seriously. Rock Hudson as a Native American? One must experience that at least once in one’s life. Okay, so that was a little cheeky. In addition to the original Rock, Piper Laurie, Tony Curtis, Janet Leigh, and Shelly Winters were in some of the films Nicholson worked on. I’m sure that they are all worth a watch.

Mr. Nicholson also made one post office mural: Fruit Season, Vacaville (California).

This card is a rather weak homage to the posters for some of the movie Nicholson worked on.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
