Original French Grande Poster (47x63) Linen Backed Very Fine Condition Art by Michel Gerard

Original French 47x63 poster (French Grande) for the the David Hand animation masterpiece for Walt Disney Productions, BAMBI (1942). BAMBI has played and continues to play a key role in shaping American attitudes about deer and woodland life. The film is the single most successful and enduring statement in American pop culture against hunting. The greatest emotional impact in the film is the death of Bambi's mother, who is shot by hunters off screen. Children are generally overwhelmed with grief for the seemingly senseless killing of the mother and realize that Bambi is left a virtual orphan without his principal caregiver. Although the film did not recover its production expenses in its first run, subsequent releases made the film one of the most successful animation features of all time. This French 47x63 was in very fine condition (we have photos of the poster before it was backed) and we decided it would look even better if it were cleaned. So we had the poster linen-backed. Colors are good and there are minimal signs of wear on the poster. Art by Michel Gerard. MovieArt guarantees this poster to be the authentic French Grande for this film. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
