War of the Worlds

A couple people in the OTR Digest point out a New York Daily News article about the original broadcast of the Mercury Theater's "War of the Worlds" play. I haven't read too much on this phenomenon but I've heard that the extent of the "panic" has grown over the decades to its near-mythological status. Read the article here. The writer even found an original player in that broadcast to interview. Arthur Anderson and Anthony Tollin are also quoted.
