The “Duckstar”

While watching the classic 1961 Disney movie The Parent Trap on DVD with the kids, I watched a special feature introducing Susan Henning-Schultz. Who? Well, Susan was Hayley Mills' body double for the non-fx scenes. Uncle Walt required her to sign away her rights to be billed in the final film, but personally awarded her one of only three "Duckstar" awards ever given. The "Duckstar" is a Donald Duck-shaped Oscar given for the Best Unseen Performance by an Actress. Made me wonder how many "Unseen" performances go unrecognized in business every day?
