Synopsis
A drama recalling the widespread fright caused by the famous radio broadcast of Halloween night, 1938, Orson Welles' Mercury Theater adaptation of H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds" (meticulously recreated), which sent millions into the streets convinced that America was being invaded by Martians. Nicholas Meyer and Anthony Wilson won Emmy Award nominations for their original teleplay. Also cited were editors Bud S. Isaacs, Tony Radecki and George Jay Nicholson. This was another two-hour movie that subsequently was edited down to ninety minutes for its network rerun (in 1977) and syndicated showings.
