Undoubtedly one of the most beloved "tear-jerker" films of all times, regardless of the audience age is Bambi, the Walt Disney 1942 production. The story of Bambi and his parents, his rabbit friend Thumper and his skunk friend Flower has thrilled and brought tears to audiences for seventy years.
From the opening segment, viewers are hooked by the beauty and innocence of both the cinematography and the story as Bambi matures and learns his way around the forest. His exposure to the changing of the seasons, different animals and the dangers of the surroundings keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
Bambi is often cited as one of the first "eco-friendly" films with its' less-than-flattering portrayal of the effect "man" has on the deer environment and well-being.
Bambi received three Academy Award nominations: Original Score, Best Sound and Best Song, and was named by the American Film Institute as the third-best all-time "animated" film in 2008.
