Hello all, Benny here. I’ve been a big fan of movies since they first started popping up in the 1890’s, and let me tell you, they’ve come a long way since then. Some of my favorite films over the years, besides the ones that include me, are those that involve the Postal Service.
A good friend of mine, Nancy Pope from the Smithsonian’s
, has a blog where she wrote about her top 10 favorite postal movies. I’ve included the list here, but if you want to read more about them, be sure to check out her blog at: http://postalmuseumblog.si.edu/. National Postal Museum

2. Charade (1963)

Also, be sure to check out the June edition of YourPostalPodcast.com for an interview with Nancy Pope and her favorite postal movies. I don’t recall catching Il Postino myself, so if you don’t mind, I’m going to go see what it’s all about.
Until next time!
