Six Degrees of Disney: From Danny DeVito to It's A Small World


Danny DeVito made the Touchstone Picture Ruthless People which co-starred Bette Midler...

 

Bette Midler starred in the Touchstone Picture Outrageous Fortune with Shelley Long...

 

Shelley Long gained fame by starring with Ted Danson in the classic series Cheers. Ted Danson starred in the Touchstone blockbuster Three Men and a Baby which featured actress Celeste Holm as his mother...

 

Celeste Holm starred in All About Eve with Bette Davis, who was in Disney's Return From Witch Mountain.

 

Bette Davis had a legendary rivalry with Mommie Dearest herself, Joan Crawford.

 

And oddly enough, were it not for Joan Crawford and her seat on the PepsiCo board, we might not have ever gotten it's a small world. It was she who setup the deal that led to Walt Disney building the Pepsi sponsored it's a small world attraction at the New York World's Fair.
