The Walt Disney

This is an amusing anecdote from Walt Disney The Triumph of the American Imagination by Neal Gabler published in 2006 (page 282-283).

But as preoccupied as he [Walt Disney] was, when it came to Diane and Sharon [Walt Disney's daughters], he was a doting father who sheltered them from his own fame. He enjoyed telling how six-year-old Diane had asked him if he was Walt Disney. "You know I am," he answered. "The Walt Disney?" she questioned. When he chortled that he was, she asked for his autograph.
