In Texas, hunting, and deer hunting, specifically, is a huge part of our culture. And here in East Texas, it's an even bigger deal. I've been deer hunting one time, about twenty years ago, doing it with several die hard hunters. The "peer pressure" was tremendous to shoot one. I got to the moment of truth where I actually had a deer in my scope. And. I. Just. Could. Not. Do. It. Couldn't do it! And I knew/know well why -- Bambi. I'd been effectively and irrevocably "Bambi-fied." Sounds like I share some good company, based on a recent poll reported by Telegraph.co.uk:
Walt Disney's classic animated film Bambi has been voted the best "tear-jerker" of all time, despite being 66 years old.
The tale of love, life and loss which follows the story of a young deer has touched generations of young fans since its release in 1942.
Its "lump in the throat moment" comes when Bambi's mother is shot by hunters.
Her actual death is never shown, instead, the fawn's father tells him quietly: "Your mother can't be with you any more," as they walk off into the snow together.
The film was named best tear-jerker in an online poll of more than 3,000 people, carried out on behalf of Pearl and Dean, with 18 per cent of the vote.
Sir Paul McCartney has credited the film with turning him vegetarian.
In an interview three years ago, he said: "I think that made me grow up thinking hunting isn't cool."
