On October 30, 1938, Orson Welles's radio play "The War of the Worlds" accidentally provokes mass panic.
Do you have any images for this title?
Apparently to save on royalties, the Paramount-owned "Cocktails for Two" is substituted for "Stardust" as "the tune that never loses favor" in the mock hotel orchestra broadcast.

Welles was 23 when his "War of the Worlds" production aired. Paul Shenar was 39 when portraying Welles.
Premiered om ABC-TV at two hours (with commercials). A subsequent network rebroadcast was cut to fit a ninety-minute time slot. Both versions later turned up in syndication.
