Three years…
It took Walt Disney no less than three years to find his Princess Aurora. There’s no need to talk about his demand for perfection in everything he touched but, quite simply, Mary Costa was that perfection, both an as artist and a human being.

It was in 1952 that she became Sleeping Beauty, and while working on the movie, she also took part in several movies directed by her husband, the late Frank Tashlin, Marry Me Again and The Great Gildersleeve. She also took part in a great number of television programs along with Johnny Mathis and many other artists from 1955 to 1960.
