Was a radio play.......it was very realistic however! There were radio actors, acting as news reporters watching the world be invaded!
I think some people actually commited suicide out of fear!(I may be wrong there)
People were definatly running in the streets screaming it was so realistic and scarey!
Yep...Ol' Orson got in heaps 'O' trouble for that 'radio play'...........
He terrorized the nation with that 'show', alot of people thought it was a real happening.
