Who Killed Bambi?

I'd heard about the "lost" Sex Pistols movie Who Killed Bambi? Production stopped after four days of filming. Creative differences were cited as the reason the film was never completed. Snippets were used in Malcolm McLaren's The Great Rock and Roll Swindle. I had no idea that Roger Ebert was the screenwriter. On his blog, Roger has reprinted the second draft of the screenplay. Russ Meyer was the director. He also directed the 1970, Roger Ebert penned Beyond the Valley Of The Dolls. According to an earlier interview with Ebert, he said the Sex Pistols were big fans of Beyond and wanted he and Russ to create a movie for them. The first three minutes of this video are an interview with Russ regarding the doomed movie.
