What has been lost in the 60-plus years since its intial release is what a watershed work Bambi was for its time.

With an emphasis on character development over plot, the film isn't quite as accessible as some of Disney's more recent efforts...

There are two ways to look at Bambi: as a museum piece or as entertainment. Focus on the latter and the film unravels.

The fun and fear, the silliness and heartbreak, are taken to vivid extremes by Walt's entwining of high art and what snobs will always deride as Disney-kitsch.

The circle of life is shown to dramatic effect in the changes of the seasons, and the growing of the animals from toddlers, to adolescents, to adults.

Overrated by people who never read the original book and think kids' voices with speech impediments are cute.

In colors that would surprise even the spectrum itself, Disney's cartoon craftsmen have re-created a woodland that shimmers and glows and darkens altogether magically.

... introduced us to a Hobbesian world where bad things could happen to the adorable, and sent thousands of children blubbering into theater lobbies around the world.
