75 years of a true classic – the magic of Bambi is captured in pure gold and silver

75 years of a true classic – the magic of Bambi is captured in pure gold and silver

Seventy-five years after its release in August 1942, Walt Disney’s Bambi has endured as a perennial classic, remembered long after others have been forgotten.

Loosely based on the novel published in 1923 by Austrian writer Felix Salten called Bambi, a Life in the Woods, the film explores more serious themes than any other Disney animation as it follows the birth and growth of a young deer named Bambi and the challenges he faces as he and his father, mother and friends fight to survive against the human hunter named Man.

Deep in the heart of the woods Bambi struggles to take his first steps as he explores his new world with his friends Thumper, a loveable rabbit, a bashful skunk named Flower, and his future mate, Faline. Along the way he learns valuable lessons about love, life, and loss.

The film is at times quite haunting and anyone who watched it as a child will still remember the devastating shooting of Bambi’s mother and the fire which blazed through the woods destroying the animals’ habitat. The intense thunderstorm sequences, fires and angry hunting dogs make Bambi an intense film with many messages for young viewers, but there are also light-hearted moments as we see Bambi struggle to find his footing on his long, slender legs, while the skating scene with Thumper is one of Disney’s most charming cinematic moments.
