Flashback Friday

In the 1950s and 60s we had Audrey Hepburn and Hollywood’s Golden Age. Then the New Age of Hollywood appeared.

In Which We Consider The Bambi Factor

1340169752It is widely assumed that every prosh bebeh deer image is Bambi. This has been so ever since Walt Disney rolled out his movie way back in ’42, and scores of kiddies were traumatized when Bambi’s mom got whacked.

Nevertheless, after extensive research, we have determined that there is absolutely nothing, repeat nothing wrong with the “Every prosh bebeh deer image is Bambi” hypothesis, and we 100% endorse this concept! (PS- Enjoy this tune from the 1942 Bambi soundtrack, “Love Is A Song.”)

July 19, 1906: “Third day of bright sunshine and fifth without rain. Miss Flowerdew gave me two Creeping Plume of the Meadow which she had gathered growing wild in Berwickleyshire. Their conspicuous blooms make fine patches of color among the green blades. Presently the air hangs quite heavy with their distinctive perfume.”  …drops pen and diary, keels over
