Who is the only person ever to win both a Nobel Prize and an Oscar?
After the latter award he said to a newspaper reporter: “It’s an insult for them to offer me any honour, as if they had never heard of me before – and it’s very likely they never have. They might as well send some honour to George for being King of England”. A few years later, Mary Pickford visited him and saw the Oscar on his mantel.
The answer tomorrow.
