When the brand becomes "more original" than its own creator

I love the story behind this very photograph from 1959:
«Disneyland, September, 1959. My [rysung] mom in a close encounter with Walt Disney. When she asked him for an autograph, he politely declined, saying that she could write to his office for one. This seems consistent with what I heard many years ago, that he didn't like to spontaneously hand out autographs because his authentic signature wasn't quite like the official Disney logo.»

- Update - For more on this and the probably most recognizable signature in the world, please check out Leonard Maltin's posting from March 2019: YOURS TRULY, WALT DISNEY
