Presenting A School-Kid Reenactment Of The Saddest Scene In Movie History

As you may have already heard, that scene in "The Champ" when T.J. (young Ricky Schroder) weeps over his father (Jon Voight) Billy's body after a boxing match turned fatal is the scientifically proven saddest movie scene ever.


Science wasn't necessary to prove this. Old Yeller was a dog. Bambi's mom was a cartoon character. And Vincent Schiavelli made "Ghost" funny. But whatever; the death of the Champ isn't quite as sad when you watch kids acting the scene out in some depraved school assembly.
