Walt Disney Company Original U.S. One-Sheet Re-release of 1988 Folded Fine Plus Condition
Original U.S. one sheet poster, re-release of 1982, 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 1988 re-release poster shows the image as Bambi close to the animated likeness in the film. This folded one sheet has some small amount of staining in a background area. Colors are vivid and minimal signs of wear, although the poster was used in a theater. MovieArt guarantees this re-release poster to be an authentic Disney Company poster for theaters. MovieArt Austin will sell NO reproductions.
