[quote]8 War of the Worlds (1953) Dir: Byron Haskin
Famously adapted for radio by Orson Welles, HG Wells’ tale of a Martian invasion of Earth became another cold war movie. “The idea that there could be life that’s developed in completely other circumstances in a completely different world which you would never recognise. That’s a very appealing idea,” says Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, California.

Didn’t the radio show cause mass hysteria because people were turning on their radios in the middle of the show? Everyone thought that earth was actually being invaded or something.
