Maine "Bambi" Model with Walt Disney (1930)

The Maine Department of Economic Development had a hand in delivering two white tail deer from Maine to the Disney studios in 1938, in response to a request for model photographs for the animation artists in the forthcoming movie Bambi.

In 1968, the Department recalled its role, with the help of Maurice “Jake” Day of Damariscotta,  in designing the image of the “star” in the movie. (more about Maine movies)
