Shirley Temple Presents Disney with his Oscar for 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'
Shirley Temple presents Walt Disney with his Oscar for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

As far as I can remember, being a celebrity has never helped me make a good picture, or a good shot in a polo game, or command the obedience of my daughter, or impress my wife. It doesn’t even seem to help keep fleas off our dogs, and if being a celebrity won’t give one advantage over a couple of fleas, then I guess there can’t be that much in being a celebrity after all.

—Walt Disney
