Stokowski was the first conductor to become a true superstar. He was regarded as
something of a matinee idol, an image aided by his appearances in such films as
the Deanna Durbin spectacle "One Hundred Men and a Girl" (1937) and, most
famously, as the flesh-and-blood leader of the Philadelphia Orchestra in Walt
Disney's animated classic "Fantasia" (1940). As conductor of the Philadelphia
Orchestra he popularized an entirely new orchestral sound known as the
"Philadelphia Sound" or the "Stokowski Sound." Its foundation was a luxuriant,
sonorous tone and an exacting attention to color. He pioneered the use of "free"
bowing, which produced a rich, homogenized string tone.
