Musically, Toscanini's interpretations are as fast in tempo as the smaller period orchestras of today - except that he used a full orchestra. Must be the hat.
Anyways, here's a
Beethoven 5th Symphony (Toscanini 1952, NBC Orchestra)
Beethoven 9th Symphony (Toscanini 1949, NBC Orchestra)
Finally, a couple links for more info on the Maestro:
Toscanini's Homepage - Loads of info - you can even ask a relative a question if you'd like!
A survey of the Maestro's career and recordings - Incredible overview of Toscanini recordings and extremely informative site in general.
