On Oct. 30, 1938, Orson Welles (Paul Shenar) helmed a live radio adaptation of H.G. Welles' "The War of the Worlds"...and alarmed a swath of the populace that believed the broadcast reportage of an invasion from space to be genuine. Speculative vignettes of shaken believers are framed by a recreation of the show's production in this demanded telefilm; Eileen Brennan, Meredith Baxter, John Ritter, Vic Morrow, Tom Bosley, Michael Constantine also star. 96 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
