Charlton Heston's longtime publicist has won a campaign to have the screen legend's image issued on a U.S. postage stamp.

In 2010, Michael Levine started a petition urging bosses at the U.S. Postal Service to commemorate the Planet of the Apes star with a special stamp after discovering his young assistant didn't know who the actor was.

Now it has been confirmed that Heston will be immortalised by the mail service in April (14). The stamp will feature an image of the actor taken by his widow, Lydia.

Heston died aged 84 in 2008. The news comes days after the U.S. Postal Service unveiled a stamp honouring late rocker Jimi Hendrix.
