War of the Worlds Radio Broadcast (1938)

During the 1930s, actors Orson Welles and John Houseman presented a radio show, "The Mercury Theatre on the Air."  This show is remembered most for its October 30, 1938 broadcast of the "War of the Worlds" by H.G. Wells.  Although listeners were cautioned that this was only a story, panic ensued across the country as people thought it was a real news broadcast and that the earth was being invaded by Martians.
