'Bambi'

"Bambi," first released by Walt Disney in 1942, is a classic film that inspired a generation of conservationists. (Former Beatle Paul McCartney has credited the shooting death of Bambi's mother for his initial interest in animal rights, according to BBC.) Weep warning: parents of younger children should know that the death of Bambi's mother is traumatic!
