Orson Welles' claim to fame came with the CBS radio drama "War of the Worlds" based on the novel of H.G. Wells. The 60 minute episode about an alien invasion by Martians was broadcasted as a series of "news bulletins" read by Orson Welles on Halloween night 1938. Newspapers reported that panic ensued, with people across the Northeastern United States and Canada fleeing their homes. Some people called CBS, newspapers or the police in confusion over the realism of the news bulletins.
