He wasn't homosexual. No idea why the page said that.
* RuleAbidingRebel: Despite being a flamboyant homosexual, the ''quintessential'' surrealist in terms of his paintings, Dali was politically conservative and claimed to be Catholic. This naturally irritated his fellow surrealists like Creator/LuisBunuel and Andre Breton who regarded him as a sell-out. Breton later noted that Salvador Dali was "[[SignificantAnagram Avida Dollars]]" ("Greedy for Money").

Shirley Temple is not a trope

** Dalí actually did a collaboration project with Creator/WaltDisney, of all people, on a short subject that was meant for ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'', but was ultimately scrapped. ''Destino'' was eventually completed in 2003 and was finally released on DVD as an extra on the 2010 holiday release of ''Disney/{{Fantasia 2000}}''. ** Once asked a young Creator/LorraineBracco if he could paint her in the nude, but she refused, just thinking he was some creepy old man. When Destino originally fell through, Walt and Dali would briefly collaborate again for a possible Literature/DonQuixote film, only for the project to never get that far.

He didn't just paint surrealism, though. [[CrazyAwesome He]] ''[[CrazyAwesome lived]]'' [[CrazyAwesome it]]. He became almost as well known for his bizarre behavior as his paintings, and may be largely responsible for the belief that artistic genius comes with insanity (see the page quote for his thoughts on the matter).

* BadassMustache: Without a doubt, his most distinctive physical feature. There was a whole book of photos of him with extra-crazy mustaches. He claimed it was a pair of antennas he used to pick up ideas. When he appeared on ''What's My Line'', the winner made sure it was him by asking if he had a distinctive mustache.
