Mary Pickford was a Canadian-American motion picture actress, co-founder of the film studio United Artists, and one of the original 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Pickford appeared in an autographed portrait in the background of the 1932 Mickey Mouse animated short, The Wayward Canary. In 1933, Mary Pickford went through a Technicolor screen test for Disney's unfinished animated/live-action feature-length version of Alice in Wonderland, which was going to be Disney's first feature-length film. However, Walt Disney decided to cancel plans for the film and passed them on to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in order to avoid conflict with Paramount Pictures's live-action film adaptation of Alice in Wonderland.
