Classical music goes to the movies

Everyone went to the movies in the 1930s and 1940s, and such is the power of Hollywood that it was inevitable that classical music would eventually go the movies. On spectacular example was Walt Disney's "Fantasia," employing the master showmanship of Leopold Stokowski. Also, the 1947 film "Carnegie Hall" showcased Stokowski as will as virtuosos Jascha Heifetz and Artur Rubinstein, among others. We will sample some music from those films.
