  U.S. Postage Stamps of 1932
April 22, 1932 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Morton and was chosen as the First Day of issue, with First Day sales in Nebraska City, Nebraska.

 Scarface (1932)
This film was originally shot in 1930 but was held from release until 1932 because the censor demanded cuts.
After it was released (to great acclaim) in 1932 it was abruptly pulled--many people said glamorized gangsters (which is just ridiculous).
It didn't surface until 1979 (Francis Ford Coppola helped get it re-released) and it was finally recognized for the classic it is.
