June 2, 1980, Fantasia 

June 2, 1980: Yes, young persons, “Fantasia” came back in 1980 as a “head film” (note the smoke and mushrooms).  In 1982, in an attempt to improve the audio quality, Disney had a pickup orchestra and conductor/composer Irwin “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” Kostal try to duplicate Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra, much to everyone’s horror.

On the jump, a great obit by Times writer Jerry Belcher.

June 2, 1980, George Murphy
